No disrespect, but I just dont understand the love affair with Carter. There was a sequence where Carter was right by the net, had TWO chances to bury it, but couldn't get it up off the ice. And that was only one shift of the nite. He has the shooting strength of a 10 year old and thats no joke.
"Above average finish" is just plain nasty. Seriously, Carter's hands are horrendous, whether it be shooting or passing. Carter's a strong skater, but not overly fast. I have no problem with him being on the first line, but IMO the points he has amassed over the years amount to nothing because that doesnt tell the whole story. Carter would get around 40 points if it wasnt for great players around him.
"gets to the net as he was doing all night tonight", lol, thats basically all he can do because hes limited offensively. Just stand there, let Rucinsky and Lindros handle the puck and he'll get his points.
