This is why this is good. The opponents will need to put good defenders against this line cause of their speed and skill, opening up more room for Carter and Richards. Or, they will be able to run wild on the ice cause the other team's top defenders are against Richards and Carter.

Remember when Detroit shut down the Legion of Doom with finesse players???
I do know what your saying. I just don't like the idea of having Knuble on the top line. Having two top scoring lines and then an energy 3rd line is the way to go in my mind. I had a feeling i'd be on my own about this but its ok.
