I've always believed that a 4th line should be an energy line: one that can change the tempo of a game with effort and hustle. Their skill level doesn't necessarily have to be that great, though it certainly helps, but providing a spark is necessary. Some teams like to use an enforcer on the 4th line to go out and start a fight hoping to provide that spark. But that only works if your guy wins. Fighting by 4th liners has hurt us this year. Hopefully BF, if he doesn't end up with third line minutes, can provide some of that hustle.
