The few pure enforcers left in the league who are there for no reason but to fight aren't "true 4th liners" anyway. Guys like Shelley are situational 13th forwards who should only be playing when a team is out for revenge or when there's no other option out there.

Even the toughest teams in the league get contributions from their 4th line beyond fighting. Even a guy like Engqvist who seems to have no purpose in the NHL, at the very least will let the other centres rest a few minutes because at least he can keep up with the game.
