I agree with the way Bob Gainey is moulding this team, he's got, well, right now, the ingredients for 5 contributing lines, if everyone was healthy. I prefer depth throughout the entire line-up than just three players that need to be keyed in on. In a grueling play-off battle, the deeper you go, the more you rely on depth. Having all four lines contributing and rolling, rather than one, maybe two lines, sharing the bulk of the minutes, you keep your players fresher for longer which is an underrated trait come play-off time.
