Yeah, I pretty much dislike that whole line as it is.
That said, this is pretty much the 4th line. This is not the line you count on to win games - though they are having trouble in the defensive zone and some turnovers cost goals.
Since Dandenault hasn't contributed much offensively either, his worth is greatly diminished. He's -3 if I recall correctly and was never on the ice when Lapierre's line scored (both times on shift changes - once when Kosto was on the ice with them, and the other when Streit scored and Kovalev was there).
Basically, since there's two guys (Ryder or Lats) that could do as good a job on the bench and Dandy hasn't done much, these guys might be worth a try in replacement.
Part of me is probably having issues with the fact that he wasn't one of the guys that took this team to 1st in the east during the season either - he was in the press box while the team was being successful.
