A physical 4th line which can be trusted to play 6-8 minutes is a HUGE asset.
Dont get me wrong, I agree with you. It is especially useful in the playoffs. I just think we have other issues to worry about before we worry about fixing the 4th line. How about fixing how the top 3 play at even strength and the bunch of ******* on defense first

I have an outrageous idea, how about we fix all the issues at once and get a coach in here that can get the most out of his players? Certainly a defense with Coburn, Alberts and Vaananen, while they might not be mean and nasty, certainly should not get pushed around.
