So much top tier talent, we should always have someone that steps up...and Carter should be one of them.
No question team effort is called upon to get the job done. This team has enough talent on defense and now has their "core" wrapped up in the fwds, plus now a goalie. No excuses, it is time for parade down Broad St. But this contract and securing of Richards and Carter long term is the organizational belief that these two are the core to success, now in their 6th year and the most tenured leaders on the roster it is their time to put this team on their backs and lead by example. It is added responsibility to perform.
