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.
I think it has more to do with some of our 3/4 line prospects not being ready yet.
