If we have 3 offensive lines, chances are higher that we are going to make that mistake while trying to create offense, especially from the third line which would have been centered by a rookie. If the top two lines aren't producing, the team is already in trouble.
That's why having a top goalie is very valuable because they can bail you out every now and then when this happens. As long as you are able to score and give him some offensive support you should be fine. For some reason we are taking a different approach which hasn't been successful in the playoffs.

The Canucks will continue to suck until the day Benning, Weisbrod, Linden, and Desjardins are all fired.
