1. There's no good shutdown line. Richards is the man you want doing that, but neither of those player seem particularly savvy in that department.

All that being said, Kuato can't come up with something he likes all that much more.
Best explanation so far......too many players not complementing their "positions". Can Briere or Giroux play wing? Yes. But are they better when playing from the center? Yes. If you are counting on Carter to only score goals then why put him at center when he can score from the wing and Briere and Giroux can distribute the puck.
