Our problem against the Devils was that we didn't have a 4th line to counter theirs because our 4th line was busy playing as our 3rd line. Fedotenko-Boyle-Prust are all essentially 20-30 point players. Not good enough for your 3rd line.

A small contradiction here: I don't mind so much a 3rd liner scoring 25 points if the other two are around 40. Just like I don't mind so much a 1st liner scoring 50 points if the other two are 70+. That lesser production from the 3rd player on the 1st line is why I don't really have any desire to trade for Nash or Ryan.
