The difference b/w Lundy and Carter at this time is this--

Lundy is more of a speedster, a skilled player who makes his living more off the rush and w/creativity as oppossed to grinding it out and getting to the front of the net.

The biggest shortcoming he has in his game right now is strength on his skates at the NHL level.Too easily taken off the puck and is the type of player at this time that needs other guys to open up significant space for him.Having a Holik and a Simon or Barnaby bulling to the net and digging pucks to feed it to Jamie to handle and then the big boys try to get in scoring position for either a shot or a rebound is what would bring Jamie success.He'd provide the speed, puck carrying and offensive dimension to the line while the other to would do the dirty work and open up space.

Carter is also a slick skater that has good offensive skills but his game isn't all that fancy.He's an underated passer and knows where his game is---within a couple of feet of the net to get shots and cash in on rebounds with a knack for the timely ones.

He isn't a rugged overpowering guy but is very strong on his skates and handles himself well in the corners and infront of the net.
