Umm, wat?

You absolutely do want one of the Richards or Carter lines against the other team's top line.

Actually, it is 100% positive.

We could have a nice balance in our top nine with something like...

Gagne-Richards-Knuble
Hartnell-Carter-Nodl
Upshall-Briere-Lupul

Or, we could do something more traditional, like...

Gagne-Richards-Briere
Hartnell-Carter-Lupul
Upshall-Metro-Knuble/Nodl

We have two kinds of options, most teams would love to...but only have one. How is that anything but 100% positive again?
