I have a couple of reservations on the 4th line. While I like that we have a pair of guys that can play a regular shift and handle the rough stuff, I am a little worried that all three guys are old.

Rupp is 32
Asham is 34
Halpern is 36

I always though that your 4th line needs to be your energy line. Make a splash in the limited ice time that they are out there. Change tempo, etc. I see this 4th line more of a "safe play" here by Tortorella. A line that maybe won't hurt you but a line that might not bring the heat when needed.

In all not really dissapointed, just curious to see how they respond at this stage of thier careers.
