I can see the argument for separating Gagne and Carter, but then you have Gagne and Lupul together.
Carter averaged 3.2 shots per game this past year.
Lupul averaged 3.1 shots. So it's not like Lupul is any less of a shooter than Carter is.
I personally would at least like to experiment with Gagne-Carter-Briere.
As I've said before, I think Carter has very underrated playmaking skills (something that Lupul doesn't have incidentally) and with good coaching, I think Carter can refine his game and become a truly elite C.
I'm not saying Carter will become either of these 2 guys because they're both HOFers, but Sundin and Sakic are known for their shots as well, but they both have underrated passing ability.
