You have way too little respect for the difference between being an AHL'er and a quality 4th liner in the NHL. There are plenty of guys with the skills to be 4th liners in the NHL, but a lot of guys never truly embrace it.

On top of that, you have the issue of the relative cap costs and the unnecessary risk of making a change. Replacing a guy like Powe, who is cheap in the grand scheme of things, is silly given that he's effective at his job and the next guy may not be at no real cost gain.

Powe: 725K
Testwuide: 900K
Legein: 816K
Holmstrom: 750K

So, 1) Powe is more effective at his job than those guys; and 2) he's cheaper than 'em.
