Need a 3rd line. This team lacks that. Top players are great, but we knew going into the season that the 3rd line would hurt due to losing Dubi and Anisimov. Kreider has not produced or been the player we thought he could be. Boyle has severely been terrible. Pyatt has not been a 3rd line player, more of a tweener between 3rd and 4th. Powe, Asham, and Halpern are fine for depth, but should be on the 4th line. Same for Haley.
Last season the team has depth. Tons of bottom 6 players that were essentially 3rd liners. It is what the team is missing. Look at the stats. Nobody beyond the top 6 is producing. Tough to rely on the top guys to score all the goals.
Can Fasth and Lindberg come over and play 3rd line at this point? Is MZA a viable 3rd line option or allow someone to move down to a lower line?
Boston won the cup making two moves at the deadline: Chis Kelly and Rich Peverley. 3rd line players. They traded for Horton in the same offseason. Both were good 3rd liners for them and added depth to a team lacking it. We need to find a couple vets that can play on the 3rd line and produce enough to spell the top guys.
