I think JVR will surprise some people, and I see no reason why he wouldn't make the team if Lupul is gone. Plus, I think Richards would be a better center for him than Briere. Both Richards and Briere have shown chemistry with Gagne and Knuble in the past, so I figure it would be worthwhile to set it up like that. We know that each of the top three lines will get lots of ice time.
