Dorsett is not a 3rd line player. It just goes to show you how low the expectations have become by NY Rangers fans of what a third line player should be. A third line player should not have a career high of 20 points. That is not a third line player. This organization with Fast, Miller, Kreider and Thomas in the minors does not need to embarrass themselves by putting a player like Dorsett on the 3rd line.

People might say. Yeah, we put Prust on the third line. Yeah, the team was incompetent offensively. The third line was a disgrace which never scored.
Career high...playing in Columbus.

And don't get caught up in actual lines, especially with Torts as coach. I view the "lines" in terms of minutes. Regardless of who you'd like to put on paper as the third line, Dorse is going to get third line minutes.
