Not necessarily, because achieving three balanced scoring lines leaves you with lines like 1a, 1b, and 1c. If this was the case with Buffalo and FES was still tearing it up, eventually opponents would wise up and match-up better against them, but leave one of the other lines to have the easier match-up. Ideally there would be one line getting a chance to clean up on a regular basis, and if you're good enough to draw that tougher match-up that frees up another line to produce, you're not really overpaid.
