I guess everyone doesn't get it but it should be common sense. With Carter in the line up when they are in the offensive zone Carter will shoot almost every time he gets the puck. Hence lowering the totals of his line mates. If his scoring percentage wasn't below average this would help the Kings but since it isn't it likely won't increase the teams offense.
The Kings are #10 in the NHL on shots on goal. The issue isn't getting pucks on net it's getting good shots on net. Carter is not a good shot player. He is exactly what they Kings are now, throw the puck at the net every possible chance and hope something good happens. Low percentage scorer.
So he's a perfect fit to play along Dustin Brown. If you're telling me Carter can score 30-40 goals by not picking good shots sign me up please. The Kings 2nd through 4th line wingers will be lucky to have 30 goals COMBINED by the end of the year. I think the Kings would welcome his ****** shot selection.
And you say he will get 40 but at the cost of others stats. You mean Penner or Stoll won't score as much? Do you even watch the Kings? LOL
