I don't mind the switch. Hartnell needs something to get him going this season and maybe this will be it; Gagne and Richards could benefit from this move, too. Powe can't be any worse than Hartnell has been this season with Carter and Briere.
Seven Top 6 players? I count 5.
Giroux and JVR will be very very good... but this season, they are on course to get less than 20 goals each.
Is that a Top 6 perfromance in terms of offensive output?
Not yet. Next season, yes, but not now. (and yes, I have watched them play and know that numbers aint everything, but still)
