Yeah I likely would've traded Carter straight up for one of them depending on the type of player we needed, which is more Carter/Kessel.

Glad it couldn't have happened though. I'm very happy with Carter finishing 2nd in the NHL in goals.

And $5m is certainly the generalized price for Kessel and Krecji. if you think otherwise you're really optimistic. It could go as low as $4.5m for either, but I doubt it could be any lower than that.
One big differance that you fail to understand. Carter was signed whne the NHL was on a financial upswing and GM's felt that the cap would never go down.

Now these two are up for RFA, but the NHL is now in a downswing revenue wise so the cap is expected to drop. That will effect every negotiation this summer.
