The only reason to want to trade Carter is if they think they'll never be able to resign him, which was already a concern. When his current deal is up, if he hits 40 goals again either this year or next year, he will price himself out of philly. Our cap situation is just terrible and Homer has to be wary of locking up 6-7+ mil in cap to 1 player again like Briere. We better be well compensated (top 6 forward, top 3 Dman, draft picks) if they do trade him at some point. But the idea of trading him isn't far fetched. Riemer has shown he was worth that #2 pick, hes a big skilled body who should be able to bury 40 goals at some point in the future.

Yea, and he hammered 46 goals like he should have. The next year, without Forsberg, with the team finishing last, he was 1 of only 2 players on the team to have a positive +/- and he hammered 41 goals, so whats your point? Ive been guilty of ragging on gagne over the years ill admit it. Hes injury prone. Even tho hes played 70+ games a season for most of his career, hes rarely looked 100% for most of those seasons. Despite it, he averages almost a PPG, and he is a very good 2 way player. His salary has never been a bank breaker. His skills are still there, hes not that old, the only thing hes lost is breakaway speed.
