If Carter wasn't putting up a bunch of points in those games, they wouldn't be blowouts and a lot would even be losses.

The case of Ray Sheppard has nothing to do with the Philadelphia Flyers of 2010-2011.
Didn't you hear? The Cleveland Cavaliers are going to win six of the next eight NBA Championships!

Carters idea of an offense zone cycle.....rush up the wing with the puck, take a bad angle shot, watch the puck swing around the boards and an odd-man rush going the other way.

Giroux is a player who looks to set up the other players on the ice and slow the play down and creates space by his ability to pass the puck. He creates lanes because he finds the soft spots in the zone, looks to get the puck deep, and set up the offense.

He gets the puck to places where his teammates can score(see pass to Nodl), whereas Carter relies on his ability to shoot and get bounces to create scoring chances. Passing can be a detriment as well, because a passer can look too often to pass and not shoot. This would also be solved if Carter had a one-timer and could play the wing, thus complementing two-wtyle of play on one line.

It is pretty simple actually.
Yes, goals that result from such plays are actually worth less than the kind Giroux sets up.
