I like Carcillo more in that spot because then that entire line has the take the body first mentality that could potentially be tough to play against.
Ah, yeah, that's largely because he's gotten saddled with the not so talented crew and carried their ***** at even strength for stretches. Particularly last year, when he had Carcillo and the not-so-good Gagne for most of the year. When he's had talented wings performing well, he's looked quite good offensively at even strength.

There's just only so much you can get done with guys like Carcillo riding shotgun.
