This is saying we added another defensive center, and have Richards and Carter as our top 2 centers. I, personally, dont think we would have, as our team is successful BECAUSE we are rolling the three scoring lines.
IMO that is what Laviolette was doing yesterday by matching up Richards with Toews. That is also why I view Zherdev as the expendable piece and bring in a guy who will fit with Richards and Nodl, Glencross would be a good fit possibly as mentioned above, but someone who can score but is a good three-zone player first and foremost.

People can talk about all the goals you want during the regular season, but come playoffs it is more about the goals you do not give up than the ones you score when goals get tougher to come across.
