Makes sense to leave those wingers together and throw Read between them for now.

Longer term, Briere will shift to RW and it will be Giroux, Couturier, Schenn as the top Cs, not necessarily in that order. We will all be very lucky the day Couts and Schenn push Claude to the 3C spot - that's a good team.
Yes, but since he was already taking on center duties defensively it would have seemed logical that he'd slot in as center full time with Brière out of the lineup. At least to me. I don't really think one can make any predictions for the future based on this decision, it might just be that I've wanted to see him in a more traditional center role for some time now.
