Things are different when your AHL affiliate is not across the street.
This crossed my mind, too. Laliberte or point-producting LW would probably have been recalled if the Phantoms were still in town, but instead Cote was all we had and Stevens shook up the lines a bit too much in my opinion.

As for the Carter comments, it's not that he's lazy, because as was mentioned, you don't put up points in the NHL if you're lazy. I think we scrutinize when he takes a couple shifts lightly, which skilled guys can get away with. Also, the fact that he sometimes clenches the stick and shoots with accuracy that would make Derian Hatcher blush is what infuriates the Carter haters on here. He has missed golden opportunities quite a bit, but I don't think it's from a lack of hard work.
