Hendricks is a 4th liner. He's filling a 4th line role. Spaling is back to the 4th line. Forsberg is not a 4th liner. He does not fit on a 4th line ... does not block shots ... is not a penalty killer ... not a physical player on the boards. The only possible place to put Forsberg is the spot currently occupied by Nystrom, who unlike Forsberg has scored at even strength this season.
