WWYDW: much ado about the third line

Depth. Some teams have it, some teams could really use it. Some teams pay an arm and a leg for it and some teams continually find it in their back pockets. It is obvious why having depth throughout a lineup is crucial towards a teams overall success. If a team’s third line is able to provide consistent depth scoring and/or strong defensive play against formidable lines, it gives a strong team that edge it needs to due significant damage in the regular season and in the playoffs. The Calgary Flames, well, they definitely do not have that a third line like that.
