New York Rangers: Building the fourth line

What is the purpose of the fourth line? On a good NHL team, the fourth line can be an effective tool used to change game dynamics and swing momentum. A really good fourth line can chip in with the occasional goal or two, or even change the face of a playoff series. Does anyone pay attention to the Bruins fourth line against the Hurricanes?

On a bad team, the fourth line can be a dust bin where you hide AHL talent until you get some players back from injured reserve.

You don’t often hear about a player being developed while on the fourth line, they are usually the grinders, the checkers, the agitators and gritty guys, very rarely mistaken for top-line talent.

If you watch a lot of Rangers games, you often hear Joe Micheletti talk about how the Rangers would prefer to give their young talent meaningful minutes in Hartford rather than fourth line minutes with the NHL team. This seems logical, but it also begs the question of who then fits the bill as a fourth line player.

For the Rangers, the player that was most often mentioned in this vein was Lias Andersson. The Rangers seemed stuck between a rock and a hard place with Andersson. On one hand, he was the seventh overall pick in the 2017 draft, and playing him on the fourth line seems almost insulting to the player and frustrating for fans.
