I personally think we need to just go back to giving this a try.
Gagne - Richards - Briere
Hartnell - Carter - Giroux
Knuble - Carcillo - Lupul
Asham - Powe - Cote
1st line - playmaker = briere, sniper = gagne, all-in-one Richards. Richards and Gagne make up for Briere's lack of defense.
2nd line - sniper = carter , net presence/protection= hartnell, giroux = obvious playmaker. Replacing Giroux with Lupul could mix things up a bit and maybe get some more offense out of the team.
3rd line - More of a traditional 3rd line role with scoring abilities. I dont know why I think Carcillo and Lupul will click. Plus Lupul gets to play with a familiar role in Carcillo with Hartnell. This line set up good forechecking and cycling.
4th line - role players that need to stop getting placed on lines 1-3.
Just trying to mix things up a bit. Who knows.
EDIT: I think Carcillo spent time playing Center in PHX if i recall
