Then you haven't paid attention to what his 4th line has been doing in relation to other top teams 4th lines. Vigneault has consistently gotten absolutely nothing out of his 4th line, offensively and defensively. The best team in the NHL was in the running for having the worst line in hockey and that is an issue. Especially since it happened the year previous as well.

The top end of the roster takes care of itself and the cream rises to the top. The only area where there's deliberation on who sits and who plays is at the very bottom of the roster and that's where the Canucks have been consistently abhorrent under AV. You don't just sweep that under the rug because hard working players like Kesler, Burrows and Hansen have developed well. Not if you don't want to keep repeating the same mistakes every year that is...
