This 4th line isn't an energy line with Clune and McGrattan though. At least in previous years we had guys like Tootoo, Hordichuk, Nichol, Fiddler and Smithson out there to get things going. This year's incarnation is pretty useless for more than 2-3 minutes a night anyway. I'd rather they bring up Watson and Mueller/Beck/Latta who at least have a chance to contribute once in a while and learn the NHL.

Hopefully the 4th looks better when Bourque is healthy.
