It's fairly obvious that they are the least important players so I really don't understand why people hate on them so much. Let's pick on the good players who are underperforming instead ya?

We're a last place team and our worst players (4th line) are our worst players, what a shocker!

We're in the middle of a rebuild and people are lamenting the fact that our 4th line sucks? Because the 4th line is unimportant it's the last thing that needs attention.
So as I understand it, fourth liners are (per Gregor) immaterial on good teams and (per you) irrelevant on bad teams. So why have a fourth line at all?
