Carter is a good regular season guy, but what goes to show he can suceed in playoffs? Its easy to point out how he hit 40 goals once and how he is a great ES player, but when it comes to playoffs its excuses, among excuses. He hurt this, he hurt that.
Personally, I think we can win the same amount of games during the season without Carter, and be successful in playoffs without him (since he doesnt do anything in playoffs anyway). Its a huge risk that Homer is going to have to make. Not many teams can win multiple cups over a small span. Very few teams do it. If he really thinks that this team can win the cup multiple times, then you keep Carter. If he cares about the future also, and doesnt want 2006-2007 to repeat itself again, you let Carter walk.
