Carter has a better shot and is a better finisher(30-35 goals/year vs 25-30/year) but Plekanec is a better playmaker, makes linemates better and is a much better all round player(defensively and on PK) which more than offsets Carter's goal scoring.
Wrong !

I got this off of an article from the Bleachreport in Oct. of this year.

"The Flyers used six forwards as penalty killers last year: Blair Betts, Darroll Powe, Mike Richards, Claude Giroux, Andreas Nodl and Jeff Carter. We can do some simple math and derive three pairings from the above forwards".
