Last year when Carter was playing well he was doing a much better job of going to his backhand side more often...this year he's back to skating down into a bad angle with regularity.
In general, I don't think Carter will ever draw too many penalties...he isn't a ******* out there, and he's mostly playing for his shot as opposed to going through/around guys (where you draw penalties as an offensive player). If he's scoring goals, though, whatever.
To be honest, I don't really care how many he draws. Like you said, he doesn't have the type of game that will draw many. But it would be nice if his penalties taken were a bit lower.
Also, a total fluke statistic but Bartulis is on the ice for a ton of penalties drawn for the team, even though he almost never draws a penalty himself.
