Have to feel sorry for briere being stuck playing with those 2. Hartnell has hands of stone and the skill of a 3rd liner and carter is a one trick pony (skate / wrist shot) ... neither of them can get the puck to briere or make a nice passing play with the guy, his talent is going to waste.
And to everyone saying carter needs a setup guy... thats TOTALLY wrong if you ask me. When have you seen him score off a one timer? NEVER..... he creates his own chances by constantly shooting to the net and using his wrist shot.
I would LOVE to see the french connection line... what are they waiting for!?
Giroux and Brieres skill would compliment each other well to make nifty plays and passes and gagne can finish (so can briere)
Gagne - Briere - Giroux
Carter - Richards - Hartnell
JVR - Powe - Asham
And of course... the only line thats worked so far this season
Carcillo - Betts - Lappy
Maybe there's something im missing here, but like i said, i think that carter and briere need to be seperated. Leme know what you guys think of these lines, because honestly, they cant be worse than the ones flyers are using right now if you ask me.
I was thinking these lines except switchin Hartnell with Giroux and making Carter-Richards-Giroux the first line
