The bottom 6 in 2011-12 knew their roles - they could play defense, were tough, and could chip in offensively every now and then. The 4th line was problematic due to their lack of skating ability and it was exposed in the playoffs.

I have some concerns about this year's 3rd line - we could potentially see a 3rd line with some combination of Richards/Brassard, Zuke, Pouliout, maybe Kreider depending on how he plays. These are not prototypical 3rd liners and they are at risk of getting outmuscled and pinned in their own zone.
