A few key points

- Richards and Carter do not play well on the same line. Philadelphia tried it numerously throughout their careers and it never clicked.

- Carter does not play well on the wing. Philadelphia tried this numerously also but it did not work. Towards the end of last season Carter was demoted to line 3 center because Giroux outplayed him and Briere could play RW. Carter only averaged 15 minutes and below of ice time to end the season and throughout the playoffs. (Comparable to Jordan Staal who was not productive playing wing to Malkin or Crosby)

- Carter has never had a good playoff effort. Career 21 points in 47 games. All spread out in bad efforts.

- If the Kings get Carter and he doesn't work out they are stuck with him until he is 37 as well as being a team that will have a lot of money tied up in numerous long term contracts restricting them in who they resign and bring in via FA.
Not a bad first post.
