The reason I disagree with this particular idea (not saying that it's a bad one) is that Justin Williams and Mike Richards are very similar players offensively. What I mean by that is, they're two guys who are very cerebral and utilize touch passes, timing passes, open space passes -- plays that most other players on the roster can't pull off or even visualize.

So that's why I think having them on different units gives you more benefit simply from a number standpoint. It's not to say that they wouldn't work well as a pair, but you could have four other forwards on two scoring lines benefiting with the skills they bring to the ice.
