Not sure I like another long-term deal, but I'll be happy to have Carter locked up. The cap hit really depends on the length of the deal so I'm not gonna bother with a prediction.
Nope, if the guy show up to play and contribute like a player who is getting paid I do not mind and if it does not hamstring or deplete the organization for getting a better deal in return for Carter I am good with it. But a long term deal and anything more than $5.5mill is a ripoff for a player who is getting paid as the best center on the team but moved to wing because Giroux plays the position better.
What do you not get about his discussion? It is not about Carter and whether he has the talent to be a 30-40 goal scorer but that he may hold the best value as a commodity to replenish a farm system and cap space which is in disarray. He is not a perennial 40 goal scorer, but a decent player who can put up points, see Ollie Jokinen.
