also, the flyers were kind of forced to pay for potential. if philly didn't give him 5, i'm positive some other team would have done it with an offersheet. a player is worth whatever teams think he is worth; it's not as clear cut as we would like to think.
Steen's strongest asset is his defensive play, so I think a points comparison would be more tilted in Carter's favour than Steen's IMO.
What Carter has over Steen isn't all-around ability. It's potential, and lots of it.
Both are similar right now points wise, but Steen's potential tops out at 50-60 points while Carter likely in the 80 point range.
