I think it's where the mishmash of 3rd and 4th line particularly stands out. On a lot of teams that's the fast, crash bang line that keeps the puck deep in the corners and will throw it out front for a good chance. On the Wings it's just inferior versions of the top two lines.
this exactly. drives me nuts how the bottom six try to play like the top 6. they need to be more traditional when it comes to the bottom six. do as much crash and bang as possible. having said that though, helm, nyquist, tatar maybe would be excellent as a third line.
