the best thing that could happen with this team next year in terms of using the talent that we have is to have Hitch come to the decision that some combo of Carter/Gagne/Forsberg should be created... don't care who is the center of the two.

i'm not sure we need a guy like Nedved around... i'd move him.

Gagne/Carter/Forsberg
Handzus/Richards/Knuble

then go from there... maybe you just leave things be and allow the Umberger/Carter/Dime line to bite into second line duties... i remain unconvinced that Primeau is a viable option for the future... which would let the Handzus/Richards pairing be your defensive line... which would be a very very strong one.

we're good for the future and Richards will play a prominent role with this team. Hitch loves the kid, he isn't going anywhere. who cares what his linemates are as long as the team is winning and he's leading it... which he will be.
