And those add ins are laughable.
If we can get Carter, a center capable of scoring, for Voracek, a winger who hasn't show the capability of scoring 40 goals and a speculative #8 pick in a weak draft, you make that trade 100 times out of 100. Period.
I agree with this. Carter is a guy I wanted Atlanta to go after, and think the Jackets should pursue him as well. His presence on the team, alone, will free up space for Nash, and the other forwards. You Nash and Carter on different lines at even strength, to make the opposition play a match-up game, and you play them together on the PP to keep PKers from cheating towards a single trigger man. There is a reason that Kovalchuk had his best offensive seasons on a line with Savard or on the PP with Hossa, and vice versa.
