I don't understand, what do you mean with this ?

Those 3 players were top liners, this is scoring depth and that's true their top 6 was immensely productive but I was talking about pure depth, bottom 6, especially their 4th line.

Mills, Boulton, Janssen and Sestito combined for a total of 144 games last season but averaged only 6:30 minutes per game. On the other hand Kovalchuk was the league leading forward with 24:30 minutes per game, Parise was 7th with 21:30 and Elias at 35 registered a career high 19:57.

If this isn't screaming lack of depth...
