Because it's not like the guy has averaged 36 goals per year the last 3 years or anything.

And he doesnt fit with these forwards. He needs north/south wingers that dont care about touching the puck....we have only one of those guys on this team that is in the top 9 (hartnell) Should have moved him instead of Gagne. With two very good offensive lines in Briere and Giroux, Richards/Gagne could have been our shut-down third line with lots of special team play.....and we would have gotten much more for him than Matt ****ing Walker
Not even close.

1) If you go back to 08-09 (when Carter actually played on a decent line), Carter led the team in ES assists. So there's all this crap about him being a terrible playmaker when he put up the most ES assists on the team in 08-09 and had more ES assists last year than Richards? Okay.

2) Carter is the ONLY person on our team who can even come close to taking a competent FO. Pens were above 60% on FOs tonight.

3) Carter is very good defensively. Not quite Richards-good, but very, very good.

4) I agree to a point about the linemates, but last year he was saddled with a player playing like total ass and Briere (who requires a lot of ES carrying). Put him on a decent line and see what happens.

I mean, this hate is ridiculous, as I just mentioned, he's averaged 36 goals the last 3 years, I'd bet there's less than 10 guys in the league that have done that.
