This. Pleks and DD were near 50% last year, not ideal, but good enough for the players they are on the team they're on. Adding some 4th liner who otherwise isn't good enough to contribute isn't really a solution. Long-term, they need to work with these guys, try to get them up there, get the young guys like White, Eller, and Galchenyuk some instruction and training, make them work on it. And if nobody can ultimately progress by the time the team reaches a higher level of competitiveness, *then* maybe it becomes an issue.
