The 4th lines for these teams seem to serve a different purpose. Mine serves as a shutdown line, and it looks like Macon's serves as a high-energy forechecking line with a little defensive ability. Cooke and Fonteyne are very different players. Neither is a real factor offensively, but Cooke is the better offensive player. But, neither of these guys is here for their offense. Fonteyne was a model of clean, disciplined and effective play, and Cooke is well known for cheapshots(he's calmed himself this past season, but for the rest of his career his MO was a cheapshot artist). They're effective in different ways. Walz is better defensively than Gratton, but significantly worse offensively. Gratton brings physicality that Walz can't match either. Shawn Horcoff is a better hockey player than Matthew Barnaby. Personally, I'd rather have my line because the largest gap is clearly at RW. Eisbaren's line will produce more offensively, while being a little worse defensively.
