Not exactly worth 5 mill a year,imo, but who else do we have that offers that potential? Now the attitude and locker room impact, I don't know. Just saying.
I'm looking forward to seeing him play tonight but not expecting too much as it's his first game back after the shoulder injury. Carter is a good player, one that I would like to see on a rebuilt CBJ roster but if any player does not want to be on his team they have to be moved.

I'm not saying this is the case with Carter but I’ve read some stuff from Portzline that leads me to believe it might be. It's a hard pill to swallow since he's only been around for six months but teams can't afford to ice players that dislike the team they are on.
