For the 4th line, Hall is an upgrade on what the Canucks have currently. Depending on which player's "gifts" are seen as more valuable (or whose negatives are less glaring), Hall could replace either Weise or Sestito.
To add to the stats already mentioned, here's some more data on Hall (EDIT: from 2012-13 5v5 stats):
While he's on the ice, Hall's team only scores a meager 0.499 goals per 20 minutes (GF20) but they only give up a stingy 0.249 GA20. That puts Hall's GF% at 0.667 (meaning that 66.7% of all the goals scored while Hall is on the ice are goals-for). When Hall is playing, the opposition averages a shooting percentage of only 2.60%. When you take Hall off the ice, his linemates score more often (0.827 GF20) but they also give up a lot more goals (0.897 GA20), which suggests that he's the key factor in the strong defensive numbers (but also a bit of a "black hole" on offense--which can be forgiven, considering his zone starts and how he's used in general). He scores quite well on hockeyanalysis.com's rating system (HARO, HARD, HART) with the best HARD (defensive rating) on the team (63.1) and the 3rd highest HART (total: offense+defense) on the team (18.2).
Hall compared to Sestito and Weise:
Hall: 0.499 GF20, 0.249 GA20, 0.667 GF%, 2.60 OppShooting%, 63.1 HARD, 18.2 HART
Sestito: 0.518 GF20, 1.036 GA20, 0.333 GF%, 12.50 OppShooting%, -41.7 HARD, -32.9 HART
Weise: 0.281 GF20, 0.657 GA20, 0.300 GF%, 7.87 OppShooting%, 24.5 HARD, -18.9 HART
One final point: Hall's 0.667 GF% would put him at 4th on the Canucks, behind only Henrik, Daniel, and Burrows (0.774, 0.769, and 0.714 respectively).
