And we would have White as the 13th forward probably playing most games since there is usually at least one forward injured. Even AK46 will hit on the forecheck, his "softness" is in his own zone on the wrong wing, and anyway if he doesn't stick then Patches can hit.

Basically I disagree with your assessment of the third line. I see much more grit there than you see right now.
