My point is despite losing Malhotra, I still think our 3rd line is better than last year.
I agree with your points but the third line last year was usually Demitra/Glass/Hansen-Wellwood-Bernier. Raymond was up on the second line with Kesler. The Raymond-Wellwood-Bernier line was good the year before.

Welly's a better player then Lapierre but Lapierre has the potential to bring a different element. Hansen is much improved over last season. As cold as Raymond has been this year, he still brings more effort to the table every night then Demo ever did.

I'd take our bottom six as a whole without Malhotra over the bottom six of last year. AV still has a bunch of options moving Higgins, Samuelsson, Raymond, Hansen, and Torres around until he finds the right balance.
