Any idea of the dollar figure?

Terrible signing.

Not a fan either, but the Leafs success this year will be based on a lot of ifs anyways (if Lindros, Allison, Belfour can stay healthy, if Oneill can return to form, etc....)...might as well roll the dice here again.

Allison to carter.. he shoots.. he scores!!!!!!!!

2 years? Hell no. 1 year, sure why not. As for whether it's a good or a bad signing, perhaps we should wait until it happens before expending any energy on that topic.

Wouldn't that depend on what he's being paid?

If he were to sign at league minimum that would be a pretty nice signing, as Carter is clearly at least a passable NHL'er.

Of course the odds of that happening are effectively nil, but I'd wait to see what if he signs for before condemning him.
I'm not particularly fond of Carter though, so unless it's 1M or less I'd just as soon pass.

Personally I'm not particularly convinced he will sign however, given the multitudes of worthless rumours that pop up about Leaf signing everyday this seems little different then most.

Maybe the thread title should reflect the fact that this is just a rumor. :sarcasm:

Roy G Biv* 08-11-2005 03:39 PM

What the heck are the leafs doing??

They need to give that spot to their youth... not waste it on some floater.

apparently they excel in signing washed up players.

B.D. Gallof 08-11-2005 04:08 PM

nice to see that the Leafs are nice enough to sweep up the league refuse. (lindros and possibly Carter)

Platapie 08-11-2005 04:13 PM

I didn't realize that Kitchener Radio was the final word. Way to bash hypothetical trades and signings though.. real smooth.

ATG 08-11-2005 04:15 PM

I would rather keep Mogilny at 1.6.....

Ziggy Stardust 08-11-2005 04:30 PM

Another name to add to legendary Leafs along the likes of Jonas Hoglund... Sergei Berezin... Mikael Renberg... Robert Reichel...

How has Anson gone from hero on the Oilers and the canadian world championship team to whipping boy of HF boards?

I'd love the Canucks to sign him. He's a good player.

Ozy_Flame 08-11-2005 05:20 PM

Can't tell if Toronto is building a team or a peach farm.


WHAAAAA - WHAAAAAAAA!

He became a Ranger, where good players go to die. He was my favourite Oiler when he was in Edmonton, but was absolutely horrible for the three teams he played for last season. He only has 33 pts in 88 games since leaving the Oilers.

He was disappointing with the Rangers and Caps, and just downright awful with the Kings.

Look where he is rumored to be going?

The preschoolers need something to do during summer vacation I guess.

That being said, I'm not a big Carter fan but who knows *shrugs* might be a good pickup for the right price

Brodeur 08-11-2005 05:25 PM

Anson hasn't been the same since he roomed with Jeremy Roenick.

// hoping for a new Center Ice promo this year
