Dont get me wrong... its always nice to have a 30 goal scorer, but he seems to be talked about around here as the saviour to our centre ice problems, and I dont see it. Sure, he's got size over pleks and he scores more goals, but pleks is a strong pk guy and a better playmaker IMO. Its not a huge upgrade overall, even if Carter is bigger.
I agree that he's not physical, but he knows how to use his size in front of the net, something that Plekanec will never do. He's also better on faceoffs than Pleky and has as strong a two-way game as Plekanec, so yes he's an upgrade.
