Devils 4th line know exactly how they fit within their structure. Rangers 4th line is a conglomeration of who can't score and who isn't going well and throw in a d-man once in a while.

Torts doesn't like carrying 23 guys. IMO he should think about that again.
This. Boyle and Prust are great fourth liners. They're subpar 3rd liners and they're awful 2nd liners.

And this. My girlfriend must have heard me screaming at the TV dozens of times "you score from between the dots coming at the goalie, not throwing it blindly to the front from the corner!!!"

And of course this. I almost hope Sullivan gets the Calgary job so we can bring in someone who has an Adam Oates like pedigree on the PP to run our own.

Still, I have to admit I wasn't a huge fan of the Torts singing at the time - and several years later, there's no arguing that on balance the positives have outweighed the negatives.
