It's good to see the PK take precedent over grit in the bottom 6 here. Peter Schaefer isn't big, hard to play against or tough but he is a clear upgrade for special teams. The 3rd line with Schaefer, Malhotra and Hansen gives the Canucks a good checking line as well as 3 players that can kill penalties - exactly what you want out of that line.

Hansen is gonna' have to impress if he wants to stay in the top 9 once Burrows returns. Schaefer's board work could be enough to bump Hansen back down to that 4th line once again. It'll be interesting to see who wins that battle for 3rd line icetime.
