Thanks for reading my blog post. After reading through the thread, I did want to clear a few things up.
First, I personally supported keeping Jeff Carter, so I certainly didn't mean to insinuate that I have pegged him as a lazy player with character issues. However, many fans did have that opinion of Carter, so I mentioned it in the piece.
Second, I did not mean this to be a journalistic piece meant for publication - it's a blog post. I attempted to cite all relevant information, but that's because I feel that if blogs want respect, they should hold themselves to high standards. I wasn't writing with the intention of masquerading as a true journalist.
Third, with regards to the purpose of the piece: this was a post trying to piece together all of the rumors, that in retrospect, appear related to the Jeff Carter trade. I felt like these connections had not been made by anyone thus far in the analysis following the trade, and I found the information interesting.
Hopefully this clarifies some of the comments regarding the post. Again, thanks for reading, guys.
I'm happy you came to the defense of your blog... I never got the feeling you were saying Carter was lazy, but were just saying that because that's what the majority of the fan base feels.
All the people saying they couldn't even read it is disappointing. Its a blog post. take it as it is.. for our entertainment and trying to supply us with some insight to the best of your knowledge. I sir enjoyed your blog post!
