Probably because he gets paid 1/4 the cost of Stoll to be Stoll.
Before the game i started writing a post about how bad the 3rd line has been, but deleted it because i didn't want to be a negative nancy.
Its not just a case of they aren't scoring, but they are playing against bottom 6/bottom pairs and are getting destroyed out there. I had the corsi numers and such in my original post, but the essentials are they get favourable matchups, offensive zone starts, yet the opposition controls the puck the majority of the time they are on the ice.
All 3 have been awful, King mostly
Trading King would be ideal, he has high value at the moment, and Penner can do what he does with a tiny bit more skill.
Lewis I don't expect much out of anyway. Only difference i'd see is moving him to the 4th line and max his pk time, while giving Nolan his ES time.
Stoll stays on the 3rd unit to maximize boarding penalties/60 minutes
