As for Carter doing well...I get the feeling that unless he scores at least one goal per game, you'd still consider him to be garbage.
It is my opinion from watching Carter play that he is not a big game type of player, when the playoffs come and the games get tighter Carter gets shut down which means his game is limited to faceoffs and defense but you are paying him to be an elite scorer. If your expectation is to win a Wales Conference Trophy than great, but the goal should be to get over the hump and win Lord Stanley's Cup. Lindros was a great player in his own right, but he never won a Cup. Joe Thorton has won scoring titles, but never made a SCF's. Great players can statistically be good but never win the ultimate Holy Grail in the NHL.
