In my world - listing 24 guys who are better (some of them questionably better IMO) still makes Carter a #1 center in a 30 team league. Calling him "slightly better than average" just isn't accurate IMO. There are probably only 10 centers in the league who have ever scored more goals than Carter has in a season. I'm not saying that goal-scoring is the end-all-be-all way to evaluate a hockey player, but it certainly is a key askpect of the game.

I'm not a huge fan of Carter, but I don't understand the level of hatred for him in the thread. He's definetely a non-traditional type of center, who is more of a shooter than a playmaker. The real knock on him from my perspective is his inability to stay healthy, which has played a significant factor in his ineffectiveness in the play-off's.
