Thats one example tho.. L.A, Boston, and Chicago's fourth lines were crucial to them winning a cup. IMO a good fourth line helps a team a long way. Playing 4 round of playoff hockey with 3 lines isn't always going to work in your favor. Winning in the NHL today is 100% about depth down to your 13th forward.
