Lapierre played well as a grinding 3rd liner in the playoffs.

But he had all of 5 points in 25 games in that role, with decent wingers in Hansen and Torres.

Those are not top 6 numbers. The Canucks could squeeze by with Hodgson and Malhotra as the top 2 centers, but it won't be pretty. I could see them using Hansen as a center on the 2nd line - he played a couple games at center late in the season after Malhotra went down.
