We already have a quality 3rd line center in Brooks Laich, but for some reason you have him at 3LW and demote a perfectly capable 3LW (Chimera) to the 4th line. It would be lovely to live in the perfect world where the entire top six is filled with 1st line players and we can have 2/3rd line tweeners on the 4th line, but that's just fantasy. Guys like Brouwer and Laich occupy important roles on just about every team in the NHL, including the winning ones.
