The question is more is:
Cap Space to Sign Players + Carter's Return
worth more than Carter himself?
That's the debate. I don't think anyone's denying Carter's skill, talent, or importance to this team.
that's a good point and I agree. I think also something that leads to people's concerns over Carter and his eventual raise in pay is that he doesn't mesh well with his line mates. For a franchise first line type of player that he's inevitably about to be payed as, I don't see a #1 LW and a #1 RW, on this team, that can be rolled out next to him on a nightly basis and have them dominate the opposing team. Frankly the only line that spends any amount of consistent time in the offensive zone is the BLT line. Yes we don't run a typical 1-2-3 Line system, but to maximize the return on your dollar I think we need to get Carter gelling with 2 players on this team that can be counted on every night. Those potential players may not be afforded however with his coming raise either.
