But he gives us an added dimension that those guys don't.
And despite what other posters may say, it does help to have a guy on the 4th line that can drop the gloves.
I am totally with you, Holland and the Wings are desperate for 4th liner players; they don't have enough and need to sign about 30 more.
Babcock could have a killer 4th line of Asham-Helm-Abdelkader-Draper-Miller-Ritola-Eaves! Holland screwed up, he could have the biggest and baddest 4th line in the league. Problem is though, would the refs let the Wings ice 9 players on the same line? That could be tricky, but I'm sure it can be done.
Or maybe Wings should, instead of icing 2nd line talent on the 3rd line, waive Hudler, Cleary and Modano so Babcock can ice two 4th lines.
