I disagree.

This is the second series where it's been suggested my 4th line will see limited minutes. I don't really view this as the case, I actually think they are among the best fourth lines in the draft. They are everything I want in a fourth line; they can score, are good defensively and have some grit, plus they had real life chemistry.

Yeah, your Russian line is pretty good..on a big rink. On a smaller rink, they will not be able to keep the puck for so long and pass anytime they want, so they will not be nearly as effective. Maltby is a proven winner with a wicked shot and a lot of grit. Madden is a Selke-winning speedy center and Pahlsson can shadow just about anyone and has a Cup too, and he was arguably playoff MVP in 07. Actually, my fourth liners have 7 Cups between themselves, they know what it takes to win. Your Russian line cannot match their defensive play. My 4th line is purely defensive, with some PK duties. I do not expect them to score much, but I expect them to bring very good defense and experience.
