4th liners don't get to play as many minutes as 3rd liners, so they have less of a chance to produce points-wise, etc.

If you gave Olesz consistent 4th line minutes, his #'s would be even worse.

Bottom line is, there's really no reason to defend his play, or say "you only hate him because of his salary" or whatever. He's a very replaceable player, with or without his bad contract.

Olesz was out-produced (as in scoring rate, a pretty minutes-neutral stat) by nine forwards and one defenseman over the course of last season.
