1) Gives us two really good lines as opposed to one
2) Gets Lupul in the top 6
3) Gets Knuble out of the top 6 (although still give him PP time)
4) Gives Carter someone skilled to work with in Briere
5) Takes advantage of the chemistry Richards and Lupul had.
I think the biggest reason Briere is playing wing with Gagne and Richards is because he plays well with Gagne and he was excited about playing with him when he signed here. Remember the chemistry issues he had last year? If this maximizes Briere's productivity, leave it alone. I don't see the same chemistry forming with Carter and he will struggle.
