The Carter trade was the perfect example of why some teams get stuck in 1st gear.

Columbus has surely blown a lot of drafts. But they wouldn't have blown drafting Couturier at #8. Johansen-Couturier would have been a sweet, sweet 1-2 for a decade. And Columbus could have just dealt one of Voracek, Brassard, or Vermette for a Dman this off-season.
