If it was Mcguire, you have to take it with a grain of salt. Carter and Richards have been two of 'his boys' since their junior days, especially Richards. They can't do anything wrong in his eyes.
True, but that whole team is Pierre's boy. Anybody who played for the World Juniors is loved eternally by Pierre. If he thought Richards and Carter were better than Crosby and Phaneuf...that's saying something.
A buddy , who of course is a Flyer fan was at the scrimmage and said that Richards and Carter def stood out as the best fwds. I am really thinking that Carter will be playing wing on the 3rd line with Richie at center.
