Depends how you mean it. Using the 4th line for ten minutes might not be the best, but if you include the pk as well, then ten minutes for Betts isn't that bad of an idea. In fact, he played 10.27 per game last season. 3.37 of that was on the pk though.
I hope we won't use two forwards as much on the pk as much as we used Betts and Powe last year though. I thought they tired, especially Betts. This could be done, either by not taking so many stupid penalties (Brière, Hartnell, please stop sending silly notes between yourselves and pay attention now), or by using more players on the pk if we face as many as we've done the past couple of years.
