I went ahead and waived Leighton this time and ran the numbers on that scenario..... assuming a $62.5m cap.... we'd still need to fill 10 roster spots (6 forwards, 3 D spots, and 1 backup goalie) with $7.03m in cap space. That's an average of $700k per player.
Sestito, Wellwood, Bartulis, and Rinaldo are all less than that. Read isn't too far off either. Neither is Gustafsson.

He's put up a mere 21 points in 41 playoff games the last four playoffs.

I think we're definitely stronger getting rid of him in favor of depth.

Let's not forget, the above-scenario means we also lose Leino. Leino alone does more in the playoffs than Carter.

That "depth" you're saying is worth more than Carter is Carle and/or Versteeg or Hartnell.

Please, please, please can we not turn this into another stupid bash Carter thread. Cartsiephan* (god rest his soul) would be rolling in his banishment grave right now if he knew someone was stealing his job.

It's a shame how a few people on the Flyers board have tarnished Carter's name across all of HFBoards. I can't tell you how many people still think he's terrible defensively.
