Oh, my bad. I think he is someone we need. A player willing to clear the crease and stick up for his team mates.

If it's mid-season and we have a major injury on defense or the defense is underwhelmingly physical, I'd be willing to give a minor prospect, like Weise, OR a 4th-5th round pick for Carkner.

I wouldn't want to deal for him now because if Del Zotto, Erixon, Vtank, and Emmy all come into camp playing great hockey, we'll have enough as it is. I'd wait til around Dec-Jan and see where we stand in terms of physicality before taking a chance on Carkner.
