He already had our best playmaking center. He did nothing on that line, so he was moved to another line to see if he could be more effective with those linemates. Since Hartnell took JVR's place next to Giroux, that line has improved. JVR will be placed where he is most effective, and he wasn't being effective with Giroux.

edit: For most of this season JVR's problems have had nothing to do with his linemates. He hasn't been using his size, he hasn't been driving to the net or setting up shop near the crease, and he's spent far too much time skating up the perimeter to fire off a bad angle shot. JVR's problems have been a result of his own play, not his linemates.
