IMHo Fedotenko is a 4th liner. Boyle is a 4th liner. Prust is a 4th liner. Rupp is a 4th liner. Mitchell is a 4th liner
Thats 4 4th liners....usually 2 of them are playing at lines higher than they should be.
that messes up your depth. we dont have enough top end talent, and its pushing people up rather than pushing people down, which is what having more talent does.
We're young. Our impact players are still a few years away from being in their prime.
I agree Rupp and Feds, Mitchell are 4th liners( 2 of them are gone as UFA) but everyone has so much hate for Boyle when in reality he is a responsible defensive C. He's a typical 3rd liner. Prust can do more than punch people in the face so he is more to me too.
