Shawn (healthy scratch) Thornton will not be a factor and in case you missed it Paillie was not qualified showing where he sits on the priority list.  Add Caron and Marchand and we are talking about a decent 4th.

    I'd love to comment more, but there is no point in attempting to have an intelligent hockey discussion with someone who thinks Patrice Bergeron should play on the fourth line of the Boston Bruins.

    Show me a team with a $5M center who is playing 4th line minutes to strengthen that line and I'll suggest that the coach is misusing his talents and needs to be fired . IMO you are weakening the team rather then strengthening it . Your best players need to play with the other high end talent on the team to maximize their abilities.

    "Fourth line minutes" are usually limited by necessity not by some formula.  Teams limit the fourth line because they get exposed in certain situations (like a Thornton-Campbell-Paille line will).  If you have the resources use them. 15 minutes  Four lines - use them equally.  Stop labeling them as third or fourth or second.  The fourth line is the one that's not clicking or producing.  Earn your minutes.

    Let this one go.  There is no way Thornton/Paille play as many minutes as Lucic/Horton. 

    Here's the formula:  The best guys on the team play the most minutes.  The least skilled players play the least.

    NAS this post wasn't intended for you.  You ran out of intelligent comments several post's ago.  I realize that when you resort to name calling and school yard insults you have run out of valuble contributions, and you degrade your comments to match your maturity level.  Go away now.

    Your formula makes sense if the B's had the resources or if the players were close to each other in ability. They don't and they are not.. There are players that are better then others on this team as there are with any team in the league . What you are saying is reasonable if you cloned a forward to make 12 of them . Otherwise 12 individuals who play with different abilities , with their ice time divided accordingly. Call the lines whatever you want 1-4 , a,b,c,d  or Curly , Larry , Moe and Shemp but the most ice time will be given to the players who perform the best . That's the way it has been and IMO will always be.

    Oops my mistake.  I must have missed that as I fell of the couch laughing at the idea of Bergeron playing on the fourth line for the season.

    The key, of course, is arranging it all so that it coincides.  Many minds can/do not comprehend this; see only the interim bits, which typically play to management's favour.  Of course, this (financial) strategy reveals itself over time.  Hence, the disdain for jj & co.

    It is quite doubtful that a team of youngsters would do much more than simply gain "playoff experience" without some big-time players.  Ergo, looking past the season totals...one has to question whether a team of potential can withstand an attack from a team of performers.  Of course, it's not probable that they might repeat a positive series performance more than once/twice, if they are, in fact, successful.

    Note: I hate trading insight/opinion for mere sentiment(s).  This is why I don't answer questions from those idiots on LinkeIn who are incapable of doing their own job(s).
