and you forgot the "regular seaon" before "2 way scoring center"
also suter would be our 3rd number 1 dman -yes hes a one...hes better than weber (even a lot of nashville fans agree) - if you add him to our d we can get away with bad goalies, so you never turn that down imo...imagine prongs suter, kimmo hamhuis, carle coburn...put me in the net and we'll win haha...once again its a pipe dream, bc not many teams trade a number 1 dman, but you never know
But you've got a bias against Carter, so no matter what, any deal looks good in your eyes as long as it involves moving Carter. And fact is, the Vokoun deal is a BAD deal. You don't move a 25 year old, 40 goal scoring, two way centerman for a 34 year old soon to be UFA. You just don't. On top of it, for those who are whining about Carter not getting it done in the playoffs, John LeClair and Tim Kerr were two other guys who "didn't get it done" in the playoffs or took 9 seasons before they started producing in the playoffs. Nobody wanted either of those guys gone.
So, why are you picking on Carter for? You say he has no heart, but he came back from two broken feet and still played, yet was in considerable discomfort throughout the finals. You say he looks like he doesn't care out there, but he's the first guy on the back check and he doesn't put himself out of position. You say he doesn't put any effort into his game, yet he's the fastest skater on the team and him hitting top speed is effortless. You say he isn't physical, yet when players hit him, they bounce off him. There's a reason why the guy is given a wide area when he comes flying down the ice.
Honestly, the Carter hate is completely mind blowing. He's the best two-way forward in Philadelphia. And 40 goal scorers are getting harder to come by. You just don't give those up for a 34 year old goaltender that's soon to be a UFA.
