Changing the lines isn't going to fix their breakout problems, it's not going to stop from getting pinned in their zone, it's not going to stop them from taking dumb penalties, it's not going to stop idiotic giveaways, it's not going to stop inexplicable soul sucking goals off Fleury's butt, it's not going to make this team play like they want to win.

I don't get it.

With Penguins right winger James Neal back from an ankle injury, Jarome Iginla played on the left side of a line with Neal and Malkin in Game 4.
Iginla, a right winger with Calgary, is feeling a lot more at home on the left side than he was when he arrived in a trade in late March. He admitted he was anxious in those early days.
"Left feels good now," Iginla said. "When I first got here, whatever position you put me at [I] wasn't feeling comfortable. You know, had lots going through my mind and pretty anxious, I guess, when I first got here. Maybe that's why I looked so uncomfortable on the left.
"Now, to be honest, when we get out of the zone, breaking out as a winger with the style we play it's just as easy to be on the left or the right as far as how we take passes and move out of the zone. I haven't found an issue."
