Personally I think Cullen and Avery would work great as third liners and linemates.

Having said that I'm also a believer that lines are strictly enforced either so Avery, Cullen, etc can get some icetime on a higher line or the PP, etc.

I think that's the mark of a good team, on a given night the second line might get less time than third so on and so forth. To me that's the mark of a good team with interchangable parts.

To me the lines are more of a common reference point more than a way of saying "A guy is only this good" or "Player X is going to skate in 70 contests on the third line".
