The magic fourth-liner effect. They make the team better without actually playing .



Well technically the team is better because they are on the bench but that's because of the massive liability they are when they play.

While I'm not as convinced about the extent size is a factor, I agree. If you want to add an element it has to be in the portion of the lineup that plays serious minutes. Lucic, Clowe and Hartnell are guys good enough to play so their qualities can actually be put to use.
