Colombus screwed themselves with the Carter trade, let's not do the same thing please.

Personally I think when you make a trade where you exchange futures you first need to think about wether or not you near enough being a contender that said trade makes you one. An expression I like using is a... from the cup. ... being Carter in that case. I don't think we are, just like Colombus wasn't. So you need to think about when you are gonna be contenders, let's say for the habs something like 2-3 years, now the question becomes will the difference, in 2-3 years, between your main piece, in that case Eller, and Carter be what you've added to the deal and I'm pretty sure that answer is no. But I'm a big Eller fan so I'm biased but I honestly have no trouble thinking that in three years a 25 year old Eller will be an equal or superior player to a 30 year old Carter, espesially since Carter seems quite injury prone. So basically we're not in a position to trade futures right now so ask me in three years.
