Here is the issue I see.....I think there is a big discrepancy between my definition of a 3rd line player, and many people on here.

Look at the 3rd lines of the most recent cup winning teams, with the exception of MAYBE the Ducks.....Our third line as it stands now is not even in the same universe as those lines.

A guys scoring 8 goals a year like Asham, or a guy like Lappy who has had really only two decent years in his career offensively are 4th liners, not 3rd liners.

Hey, I like the guy....He brings a lot to the table but we need legit third liners on this team at the moment, not 4th liners or tweeners.
