If you want to win the cup, then yea you need your 4th liners to score at some point.
Patty is the better fighter, but still, he has been destroyed in half his fights this year. Neither is a match for the big boys, best to go with the better player.
If you are expecting the 4th line to put up points then volpatti at least has a goal while playing exclusively on the 4th, while dale has gotten time on the 2nd and 3rd and fanned on shots.
I dont think either guy is going to score really, its more of a nice surprise when 4th liners score rather than being expected.
I would go with a volpatti-lapierre-kassian 4th line (amex on 2nd), although im sure av would wake up in cold sweats thinking about a possible defensive breakdown of volpatti and kassian on that line, but man would they hit and play physical on that line.
