Total: 52 g - 45 a - 97 p
Briere and Giroux will have to pick up 97 points of the slack in order for this to work out well for the Flyers' offense:
Briere (29GP): 11 g - 14 a - 25 p
Giroux (42GP): 9 g - 18 a - 27 p
Total: 20g - 32 a - 52 p
To cover both Lupul and Knuble and their own contributions from this past season together the two of them need 72 g - 77 a - 149 p.
Basically both would have to be around PPG players to cover the spread from last season for themselves and Lupul + Knuble.
That's not to mention lineup difficulties. What do we do?
Gagne - Richards - ???
Hartnell - Carter - ???
??? - Giroux - Briere
Gagne - Richards - Briere
Hartnell - Carter - Giroux
??? - ??? - ???
Quite honestly I'd feel safer with Lupul or Knuble around...and if I had to pick I'd honestly pick Lupul unless he gets us a future goaltender or defensive upgrade.
I'd rather get rid of Jones, trade Lupul for Harding, re-sign Knuble for two years at $2 million per, and keep Carle.
