Flyers shake up lineup, demote Vincent Lecavalier to fourth line

Vincent Lecavalier is a fourth liner and the Flyers lineup is shaken up.

A month ago, our own Collin Mehalick wrote a story breaking down just how bad Vincent Lecavalier has been this season at even strength. In that piece, he wrote...

The coaching staff would never relegate Lecavalier to the fourth line, so, what does that leave?

So, about that. Craig Berube shook up his lineup today. Te first line is the same as it ever was, with Claude Giroux centering Scott Hartnell and Jakub Voracek, but everything else is different, and Lecavalier is on the fourth line. Via CSN's Sarah Baicker, here's the shakeup:

Hartnell - Giroux - Voracek
McGinn - B. Schenn - Simmonds
Read - Couturier - Raffl
Rinaldo - Lecavalier - Hall

Oof. What do you think of the new lineup? About Vinny's demotion?
