"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.
Carter is a quality hockey player. You make it sound like he is lucky to have a job in the NHL. Hes not an All-star but any team in the NHL would like to have him on their roster. If hes on your second line your not in bad shape at all. Hes a 25 goal guy and a good guy in the lockeroom.
