So if Yeo decides to keep the 4th line intact, I really have no idea who would sit in order to accommodate Pommer on the 3rd line.
Now you're simply over thinking it. It's not the 4th line that's going to win games. The players in the top 9 are not going to sit, so there really is only one option. Konopka. Mitchell is good at faceoffs too and he's faster and down the stretch played much better as a 4th line center than Konopka did at any point of the season.
