This theory about not-well-linked-pages alone makes no sense either, it has to be in tandem with devaluation of links. I have several pages linked directly from my homepage and they don't rank much better now. Definitely not long tail and all my pages are 2 clicks away from my index page
Home Pr4 > 26 cats PR3 > Product
Home Pr4 > 20 othercats PR2 > Product
The products are accessible also by a sitemap and most are accessible through another map, all linked sitewide on my site. I have plenty of good links coming to my site, I have sitelinks and a daily cache on at least 3 pages. Given my (ex) GreenWidgets.com name I should at least rank well for "Toyota Green widgets" which is on page and title, but I don't. When I do, I get up to 10 referrals a day for a certain page only to have it die down.
