If Carter was more consistent at getting to the net he would increase his goals and help his game, but watch him when he skates around the ice when he gets a chance to set up the cycle....both he and JvR are guilty of it, they shy away from this area and prefer to set up along the boards and take the bad angle shots, which is not necessarily always a bad thing especially when you have established offensive zone possession, but with their size and reach they could make a very good living in the crease area.
