The Richards line would not be very good defensively, but that doesn't mean the lines couldn't be situationally changed. Carter-Richards-Laperriere could work defensively.
Putting JVR with Carter and Giroux is really enticing, but I think its better to have JVR with Richards then Carcillo. JVR is much better offensively, and should at least be on par with Carcillo defensively this season.
I would like a JVR-Carter-Giroux line, but it depends on how much of a role you think Carcillo can have, and whether you think Carcillo or JVR is better defensively.
