You are correct that a first line does not have to be made up of all first liners (what?). Gretz hardly every played with 2 first liners, user 1 first and 1 3rd./4th.
I have no problem picking up some depth, without blowing a draft pick. Seems the intelligent way to go.
If he has a good shot, all the better, along with his reputed penalty killing, it can't be bad.
