I don't think the points Lapierre put up as a winger are relevant at all to the discussion.
I feel like you're making too big of a deal out of the 10 point difference that would unquestionably make Lapierre a 3rd liner, that he may or may not get if he were regularly on the 3rd line.
Even if he's not, I don't think that's enough to make that huge of a difference when comparing depth across positions.
