True, but the way I read his comment was that there would likely not be a line that was a defensive only line. Here was the quote. "The makeup of our team last year was Sutter’s line was more of a checking line," Muller said. "We’re looking at the possibility of two good lines while allowing the third line to play a little more and offer a little more offense than last year. The third line, we should get production from."

I read that as the top two lines will be good, scoring lines, but the 3rd line will be more rounded and have defense and be able to contribute. I guess it all comes down to the 3C spot. Who do the Canes have filling that role. Is it a guy from Charlotte (Dalpe, Welsh-unlikely, Nash-unlikely), is it Brent moving up from the 4th line? Is it Jokinen? or do they make an acquisition?
