1st and 2nd line players will dominate the ice for the attacking team.
With 4 forwards and 2 defensemen:
1st wave = 3 first liners + 1 second liner
2nd wave = 2 second liners + 2 third liners
With 5 forwards and 1 defenseman on the 1st wave:
1st wave = 3 first liners + 2 second liners
2nd wave = 1 second liner + 3 third liners + 1 4th liner or a 2nd defenseman
*I've seen the Devils go with 6 forwards back when the skill on their blueline was pitiful, but it was never very effective
