If a prospect only "succeeded" if they became a first liner, then the majority of prospects in the nhl would be considered busts
So if you can't draft or develop 1st or 2nd liners how will you ever make the playoffs, other teams don't give up their 1st and 2nd liners as we have found out in the past. We've already got a roster full of 3rd and 4th liners.
