Your 3rd line doesn't need to be a pure shutdown line (there are very few of those in the NHL), but if you're looking for more of a two-way/energy line that plays competent D, and tallies a few goals here and there... Carcillo is fine on that. That's essentially what the Carcillo-Betts-Lappy line was last year minus the offense (you need a center with a bit more than Betts for that) last year. They were getting a lot more minutes, and were a lot more effective than a traditional mucker 4th line.
