I don't dislike him, though. It's just that unless he's going to be a standout player, I consider letting a young kid earn some of his time.
The only issue with this though, is that your third line is your energy line, and a line that you can throw out when you need to shut down a powerful line. Smith and Eakin are both top 6 'roled' players, so the 4th line is a good spot to have them in. Just limit the 3rd line minutes, don't take penalities and they'll see good development time.
A good coach would rotate the younger guys into those top two lines as the game progresses while we're up on the scoreboard.
