Does Carter even have one goal with as much significance as any of those?
Plus, Gagne's career GPG is also better, soo......
Carter is not as good in the playoffs as he is in the regular season, and pales in comparison to Gagne, Briere, and Richards. But his regular season numbers are so great! Too bad they don't translate to the postseason.
As I said, we'll see how it goes this year. He appears to be rolling well right now and healthy, so hopefully he gets nasty with it. I'm just not holding my breath, because I don't think he has the ability to bear down and get it done when the pressure's on.
You don't remember it because the argument was just as dumb as the Carter one today.
Gagne's first 41 playoff games: 12-6-18. (Yes, Carter has a better first 41 games...)
Gagnes next 49 playoff games: 20-9-29.
