If that line doesn't get trapped against an offensively superior one (i.e. any line besides the Bruins 4th) they won't be too big of a liability.
It's not just that. If they were bringing the crowd to their feet and laying dudes out while not being an abomination on the ice, i'd be all for them. However, They didn't bring significantly more grit and energy to make me not want Asham in the lineup over them, and while Richards is suddenly bad at hockey he's still a much better player than Newb.
