as far as the fourth line goes, I gotta go with Stone-Taffe-Godard/Kennedy

I know what you're saying, but in the playoffs he didn't change things much besides shuffling the defense pairs once.

Therrien doesn't change lines just to change them, he changes them when they aren't working. He's had to change the lines a lot in recent years because the roster wasn't such that you could put together one set of lines and hit on it right away. They had to experiment a lot before they found lines that worked. Look how long Malone-Malkin-Sykora stayed together. They seem to have hit on a top three that's working pretty well.
