Hmm.

As good as that Briere/Leino/Harts thing was in the playoffs, both Briere and Hartnell have the propensity to straight up disappear and we only have a small sampling of Leino. And I don't see Roo/JVR picking up massive slack just yet.

So basically, experiment with it, but if it doesn't work, change it fast.
holy hand-grenade that looks good (keeping in mind our scary defense!)

i'd swap carcillo and shelley though! (surprising isnt it?)

richards/carter are actually quite potent together, and makes no sense to have richie be a winger instead of carter b/c richards is be FAR better defensively...

give carter a shot with a half-decent foot and some actual coaching on how to play winger and i think we'll all be laughing at how silly it was to have him play center.

as for briere, sure the numbers are similar...but if you watch the games he looks SO much better at center, he was much more dominant and caused tons of scoring opportunities.

i'd consider swapping JVR and hartnell if the briere/hartnell/leino line cant get it together.
