The fourth line job might not be easier than everyone else's, but it is less complex. Yeo clearly doesn't trust the second line defensively, the third line seems like it's a holding spot for specialists, and the first line isn't all it could be. Like the team as a whole it's getting better the longer it stays the same, but Coyle isn't up to speed yet. I'd say the only line that is functioning at 100% or as close to it as can be expected is the fourth line.

people here need more patience. I think we're working on one thing at a time, fourth line has "got" their role quicker than everyone else, therefore Yeo trusts them more than would seem logical for fourth liners.

it is working, in the long view.
