Kind of odd considering Koivu's line was usually matched up vs. the other teams top line.

Checking/scoring line doesn't mean much on the Wild, as they try to have all lines play a responsible 2 way game.

There's nothing that says the 3rd line couldn't be a scoring line provided they had the talent to score; the defensive responsibility is always going to be a requirement.

The pure checking line ceased to exist on this team once Wes Walz hung 'em up.
