Having Lang centering the 4th line would be useless.

Lapierre is a role player, whether it's on the 3rd or 4th line, he has the grinder role.

A fourth line doted of Moen/Lappy/Stewart-Laraque can be very effective.
I think a 3rd line consisting of Lang(considering he's as good as last year) instead of Lapierre will produce more, which is what counts most.

I'm just not convinced that Lapierre can improve his offensive production from last year. I think it's as good as it gets for him and I don't want to waste offensive talent like Lats by his side.
Make Lang, or Pleks play wing.
