Can he carry the team in a playoff series? Is this a successful deal if he goes on to score 35 goals, 65-70pts a season but then falters in the playoffs and the Flyers do not win over the length of Carter and Richards contracts?

Over the first 17 games Carter has shown he can be dominant at times and over the last couple games I am impressed with his play, especially the play/pass to Giroux the other night. If he can adjust to palying the wing and still be successful while bringing a Stanley Cup it is a good deal, if not Homer has made a bet in which his and the players legacy could eventually lose on.
