Fully agreed about how bad the length of the contract is, especially in light of the upcoming CBA talks. I have always liked Carter, and I believe that the Rangers were high on Carter going into the 2003 draft. I'm not someone who really wants to see this team do anything at this point, especially with Dubi having played so well lately. As for why Philly would move him, well, they moved Richards, too, and he could play on my team any day, so, I'm not buying that line of reasoning just because Chris Pronger had a hissy fit. Giving that Carter wants out, it's possible that the price tag might not be too high. OTOH, this team has phenomenal chemistry, and I'm hesitant to mess with it. While we all have visions of a Cup run because of the team's current success, in my heart, I believe this team is still a year away from legitimate Cup contender status. Adding a piece like Carter
improve those chances. But, then again, much like a deal for Ryan, nothing guarantees either player finding success in NY.
