Like I said before, I'm not totally against acquiring him but please stop referring to his contract as a positive. At best, it's a huge gamble with some value to be gained for the next couple of years.
I would remind some that Dean has said in the past that once a room has matured (and the Kings' room has) you can add a player that may not have the best reputation of the ice if the talent on the ice is there.

I am not saying Carter is a problem player, but I doubt it is a major concern now that Dean has his leadership group in place.

I would start by offering Johnson and would try to avoid any "+" being Bernier.
