why would you bring a fourth? When you need a goal you can easily roll just those 3 lines. Everyone there can play 20 minutes a game. I'd rather only play 9 forwards the whole game than i would play 12 scoring forwards, that way you spread the ice time too thin.
You bring a strong defensive line (And none of Toews, Richards, Bergeron are slouches on offense) for when it can prove useful, because 12 pure scoring forwards is too many cooks.
