This probably has been covered in some other topics, but i've been slacking in following the boards lately. But I've always wondered this about Carter and his inability to fit into his time on the wing as to why he's been placed at RW. Since he is such a shoot first ask questions later type of player, why don't slate him in at LW instead and give him the opportunity to cut towards open ice and unleash that wrister on a better angle more consistently? He gets those opportunities at center, but I find most of the time he has to carry the puck in himself to do so at that position, limiting the creativeness of his line and forces himself into many obvious and predictably easy to defend shooting situations.
