I think Briere at wing could work, but Metropolit just doesn't seem to be able to generate offense and whoever has played on his wing thus far seems to struggle. I say we keep Briere at center for now, pair him with Lupul and Upshall/Nodl and hope that they can generate enough offense to offset their defensive liabilities. If their struggles in our own zone get out of hand, then consider moving Briere to wing (although I'm not sure where he would go, I just don't see Carter and Briere together and breaking up the Gagne-Richards-Knuble line seems stupid at this point).

As for Matt Carle, I think he will be a solid second pairing guy for the next few years and I am very glad we got him. Even though he has struggled a little bit to get on the score sheet, his outlet passes have been exactly what this team needed and he plays pretty solid D.
