I agree with this.

For the sake of example, let's say you have two lines with 3 good players and 3 bad players. In this example, I use "good" to mean offensively skilled and "bad" meaning not offensively skilled.

You have two basic choices for how to configure the lines:

Choice #1: 3 good players on one line, 3 bad on the other. In this setup, your first line will generally be able to create a decent amount of offensive zone time/chances. Your second line is generally ok enough defensively to get by even if they spend most of their time in their own zone.

Choice #2: 2 good/1 bad on one line, 1 bad/2 good on the other. In this setup, you haven't really gained much defensively but you've really crippled your offense. Having two good players instead of three makes it much more challenging to produce offense and the lone good player on the second line isn't going to be able to do much of anything by himself.
