Waste of talent as they don't get ice time to improve their game.

You will never see Couts, Read, or Schenn on the 4th line.

This is not fantasy hockey.

Before Dobberhockey went to pay to review, it showed that Seguin played around 3-5% of the time on the 4th line. Thats a good chunk (it shows linemmates). Checked it for an argument during the summer.
Plenty of players have started out their careers on the fourth line. We had Carter and Umberger there for the 05-06 season, I think. In that same season Ducks played Perry and Getzlaf a whopping 8.27 and 7.47 minutes per game on even strength.
