For 1 and 3: I sure freaking hope so.
Just because giroux makes everyone around him better, doesn't necessarily mean that he had chemistry with Carter. I don't know, for some reason it just seemed like any line Carter was plugged into, he ruined any chemistry that had going.
And no, just because steeg was brought in to play with Richards, doesn't mean they actually had any chemistry. I really didn't see it. If they had, they both would have been factors down the stretch. I realize richie had a busted wrist, but that alone refutes your claim that they had chemistry. Because injury or not, they were both ineffective down the stretch and in the playoffs.
