The whole line number thing is overblown. A guy might have first line talent, but he's a better fit on the "2nd" line with some other players. Same can be said of a guy who is a "3rd line" talent but brings something to the first line that nobody else on the roster can.

Yogan is that kind of player. He's skilled, gritty, he can skate, he has solid hockey sense. Is he going to be a dominant power forward? Not likely, but he can certainly be a quality piece that compliments your scoring forwards. In fact, Yogan is exactly the kind of player I'd want to put with guys like Richards and Gaborik. He might not score 30 goals, but he can provide the grit and board work that you need to create space for the other guys. He's also skilled enough to make a play. Think Troy Brouwer or a poor-man's Mike Knuble.
