I like the way Giroux handles the puck more than I do Carter. Carter's line is the worst on the team for keeping pressure in the offensive zone this year; with a creative player like Giroux keeping the puck out of Carter's hands in the offensive zone it will create more chances. It would even allow Hartnell to set up in front of the net, which he didn't do very much this past season at even strength.
I also think a line of Gagne-Richards-Lupul (if Briere is moved) or Gagne-Richards-Briere (if Lupul is moved) makes a great compliment to the above Carter line, should the Flyers revert to a more traditional third line checking group.
There's a lot of time before we'll know the make up of next year's Flyers; I was just happy to see someone else entertain the idea of Giroux with Carter.
