I'm not so sure about that. He might have been useful in previous seasons but Darche was over the hill last season. Not completely useless as some would claim but he had too little left in the tank to be an effective energy forward or secondary point producer and not tough enough to provide grit. Moen did not play much on the fourth line, he was mostly a 2nd or 3rd line forward.
Armstrong and Prust are equal or superior to Moen or should be. White is superior to Darche, not as experienced but definitely tougher and much more energic. The third line should be stronger too, we might not have Kostitsyn but Eller is more seasoned.
Our bottom 6 is faster and stronger than it has been in years. I'm sure they can handle tougher assignement. That is of course unless the 4th line is the ''official Gomez shelter line'' once again. Hopefully not.
