It would be nice if the 4th line could pop in a total of 27-35 goals and forecheck. Guys like T. Mitchell, Travis Moen, etc. will be a little pricey, but could help and provide depth and can take a regular even strength shift/PK/etc. provide the other guys a rest.
I'd rather slightly over pay by 500K to 1 million for a fourth liner and have that insurance than have to have John Mitchell on the PP or a 7th Dman on the wing again.
Have a lot of extra guys just in case and the best scenario is that Yogan/Hrivik or even JAM/Thomas/Wellman/Borque are ready and force those guys out to be dealt or have extra bodies around for a playoff run.
I wouldn't mind giving Wellman a shot. Bourque is iffy. Thomas is not a 4th liner and I seriously doubt can fill that role. Yogan is probably going to need some seasoning.
