As I drove home from the Canucks game last night, Blake Price and Joey Kenward were fielding questions and concerns about the lack of production from the third line. Specifically, >concerns were raised about the Canucks off-season acquisitions, Manny Malhotra and Raffi Torres and their lack of production on the third line. They made an interesting point - they are perfect for the fourth line.
So... Why don't the Canucks move Malhotra and Torres to the fourth line?

Game Day Recon #54 - Senators @ Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks return to action after an emotional, high-energy battle against their most hated rival.
Will having the weekend off, and now facing a weak opponent, provide a speed bump in their road?

As it stands today, at least four players have a legitimate shot at going first overall: defenceman Adam Larsson of the Swedish Elite League, and forwards Sean Couturier, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Gabriel Landeskog.
After looking through the numbers, I’m convinced that Nugent-Hopkins would be the wrong selection.

2010-11 ushered in a lot of changes for Roberto Luongo. Luongo got a new goalie coach, who immediately started making changes to his style. He lost his captaincy. The team put more emphasis on ensuring backup Cory Schneider got into games on a regular basis.
Yet, despite those changes, Luongo’s results remain remarkably similar.
