Of course, this doesn't matter if the whole 4th line sucks. But with these new players, we may have something better. Is another forward going to double-shift so that Bick only has to play 3 minutes?
As long as it's only vs the Bs and Flyers I don't think it hurts the team at all. It's the constant high load on a few players that will cost us, not the odd game.
