In terms of his trade value, definitely if the team can add a reasonable scoring winger with a smaller cap hit and also pick up a defenseman prospect then it makes sense. I am not opposed to keeping him around and trying to re-sign all FA's in the offseason. There will be other pieces departing and possible cap increases so it's not impossible.
He is soft. Soft players do not rise to the level of the playoff game. They are better during the regular season because they can play against teams who will not defend them. Carter........push him wide, make him shoot, and counter with a quick line change and an odd-man rush. There is a reason why teams shut him down, he is easily defensible. It is so obvious I am not sure why anyone would even discuss about Carters playoff performances.
