Iggy needs a good passer with him. Or some talent in some form. He has nothing.

7 good guys, but we need 6 for two lines, not 7 for three.

IMO we should trade 1 (hartnell, gags, briere) for a good dman and a 3rd line grinder, but i think i've made that point...

gags richie carter
JVR briere giroux (flip briere and giroux?)

thing with giroux/briere is that they are both competant at wing and center and are both pretty small, i'd take giroux up the middle over briere though.
It's like this. Stack the powerplay, but set the lines where everything is most comfortable.

Carter's line doesnt need to be stacked. The guy shoots a lot and dominates the puck. Putting too much talent with him is a waste in a way. He doesnt dish.

Richards dominates the puck also and has good chemistry with Gagne. Again, this line is in many ways our top defensive line. I wouldn't mind Giroux with these guys, but again, stacking lines when one guy dominates the puck is silly. If there were 2 pucks on the ice, I'd be all for it, but there is one.

Giroux, JVR and Asham have a lot of chemistry, so why not let them all play together? Nobody dominates the puck here, but Giroux at center lets him get more chances with the puck on his stick, so this works for me. JVR could also use the icetime with the puck on his stick. Throw those two with Richie or Carter, and they DON'T see the puck, which is counter-productive.

However yes, on the PP I would stack it way the hell up with all 7 of our best forwards and Richie on point.

Bingo.

Glad I never did because now it sounds as ridiculous as my gut feeling said it was.
Very true, which is why I wouldn't move Carter for anything but Kovalchuk. That was the only proposal I saw that even made some sense.
