I'm not trying to argue with you but we clearly have conflicting philosophies. Guys like Bickel and mashinter are not going to get this team going in my opinion. (And FYI I like Bickel)
Which is funny, because I don't like Bickel.

I just feel that players have their roles. Expecting a 4th liner to provide any offense means the top-9 is not playing well. IMO, if you want to replace someone why not Richards? Let the 4th line play their 4-5 minutes and bring some energy.

This happened a couple of years ago as well when the team wasn't scoring. People started to get angry with Blair Betts and Jed Ortmeyer for not putting up points. Those types of players ave roles on the team. They fulfill those roles. If you are looking for more scoring look at the top-9.

Miller hasn't exactly been lighting it up. Same with Boyle. Pyatt. Richards. Gaborik. Those are the guys you look at.

Kreider is not a 4th line player.
