Let's revisit this after the 'Canes game.
Gagne always floated around the halfboards and top of the circles looking to get the pass and look to release his wrist shot on the net. ALWAYS. And he was always criticized for it around here.
If you're a shooter, you need to stay outside the muck, otherwise there is no way for you to be open to get your shot off.
As just *ing noted, Carter was in front of the net... so your statement concerning his "proximity to the net" is an empirically false statement, and continued evidence that you ignore reality in order to construct your narrative of discontent with regard to Carter.
As ever, you're biased and full of it.
