As I'm sure you've done many times on this blog, I disagree with the coach. And I disagree specifically if he sees his third line as defense only "checking unit". The best checking lines can stymie the other team's top players and threaten the opponent when in the O zone. Winning teams often have three lines that "can" score.
AV is working with what he's got. Cally and Hags are injured and the kids didn't really impress in camp. Not to mention the Rangers have limited cap space.
