In a perfect world, with all skaters playing to their potentials, the top 2 lines should be:

Gagne - Richards - Giroux
Hartnell - Carter - Briere

But look where it puts us. JVR, Leino and Carcillo (who is borderline top 9) are left out of the top lines.

We are just too loaded with top 9 talent. They talk about our depth but is our depth incorporated correctly?

Hope this made sense.
The fix to this "problem" is to make Richards and Gagne our "3rd line" and match them up against other team's top scoring lines along with our shut down 4th line, like, you know, we already do?
