I'm going to go out on a bit of a limb and say Matsumoto, if given the chance, makes the team out of training camp as the 4th line C. Depending on how he plays, maybe he'll get increased minutes as the season goes along.

So, I'll tweak my lines a bit...

Hartnell-Carter-Briere
Gagne-Richards-Lupul
Upshall-Metropolit-Knuble
Asham-Matsumoto-Cote

If Giroux makes the team out of camp (and, if he does, it'd have to be as one of the top-9, otherwise it's a waste), maybe we'll see something like the following. I'll also craft these lines with Briere remaining at C.

Gagne-Briere-Hartnell
Upshall-Richards-Lupul
Knuble-Carter-Giroux
Asham-Metropolit-Cote

Personally, as much as I hope Giroux makes the team out of camp as a top-9 forward, I like my first set of lines better overall (although, next to Briere, Giroux is who I'd most want to see on Carter's wing).
