And no, depth doesn't hurt, but you still have to work within the cap, not to mention there's only so much ice time to go around. Do you see a lot of proven NHLers willing to take a proper fourth line role (meaning seven or eight minutes a night) on the off chance they can move up the depth chart in the event of an injury?
It's funny, because not only are Gregory Campbell and Colin Fraser legitimate 4th line centers, but the fact that they're only marginally better than our options is overshadowed by the fact that both teams have far superior 4th line wingers.
Paille-Campbell-Thornton
Clifford-Fraser-Nolan
Smyth-Acton-Brown

One of those lines is not like the others....
