Absolutely, for two reasons.

1. Carter getting hurt could be a blessing. Last week's team was not going to go deep in the playoffs, period. The only thing that could save us would be a big wake-up call to all the underperformers. This injury could provide that. The team can contend without Carter. It can't contend with Hartnell, JRV, Giroux, Briere, et al. underperforming. Ball's in their court.

2. August 14th, 2008. Sure, a little earlier in the baseball season than we are now in the hockey season, but the Phils had just lost a bunch of bad games, and J-Roll was running his mouth, and I confidently predicted that they were toast.

Today, may all pessimists here be as wrong as I was on that day.
