Frankly no matter what people say I believe sometime during the season Carter will have to be moved as well especially if he does his 5 game appearing and 10 game disappearing acts on a consistent basis during the year again. Even if he sticks around all season b/c of Holmgren's stubborn deathgrip on the guy..he'll have to trade him in the offseason next year. There are going to be too many salaries up for negotiation and tying up 6-7M in Carter will not be prudent especially if he has another streaky season. This is not to say that I "hate" Carter..just from a business standpoint he is one of few assets with the most leverage. Even if Briere would be more ideal to move if he agreed to leave..he wouldn't command and net as much as Carter. Now if Carter has a long term injury this year....umm yeah the Flyers are screwed!
I completely agree on Carter. I thought the main reason Gagne was safe is because Carter would get moved. I mean he's a C that would command far more in return with no NTC. Seemed pretty sensible.
