I just can't believe a team in the position of Columbus can afford to trade a player like Carter, whom they paid a premium for very recently, a few months after being acquired just because he's unhappy. There has got to be something there that made them second guess themselves having this guy around for another ten years.
As for Gaborik, at the time I thought it was a good decision considering the risk. He was coming off an injury that kept him out for almost a full season. Hard to commit that kind of money when you don't quite know what you're gonna get. Now in retrospect he recovered just fine, but I'm getting sick of all the posters with all the answers now after the fact. Noone was talking about Lombardi missing out on Gaborik last year when he was having a bad season. Now that he's doing good, suddenly Lombardi is an idiot.
Just like there had to be something with Mike Richards right ? So far Mike has proven anything that the Media wrote about him is bogus(So far).
Columbus really didn't give up a ransom for Carter. They gave up a guy, that struggled to produce for them consistantly(Although talented). Also Two picks, the Top ten pick hurt a little.
Carter IS still the best player in that trade.
The Gabo thread was brought up a few weeks ago(Telos I think re linked it), Plenty of people in that thread thought it was stupid Dean didn't offer Gabo what he wanted.
