As someone else pointed out, if we do pick up Carter, we are going to be full of Centers. What do we do with them all? If do pick up Carter, I expect Vermette or Pahlsson to be shopped around.

But I also wouldn't be surprised if we are trying to pick up a couple defense men with Jake and the #8.
Why not Nash/Carter/Brassard?

Better passer better hands better shot. He's also the worst in the circle amongst the centers.. which would be another reason (albeit not an ideal one) to move him away from the middle
