I don't hear many proposals involved the NYI. Islanders have been playing decent hockey and could still make a push for the playoffs. Carter coming in might give their fan base something to be excited about other than Tavares. I just think it'd work if Nino was back on a line with Johansen. They did pretty well in Portland together. I know it doesn't fit our needs, but Nino-Johansen-Yakupov would be a pretty good line.
I think Carter is going to be grouchy in NYI for the same reason he's supposedly grumpy in CBus. He doesn't seem interested in going to an "Up and coming" or "rebuilding" team. The Isles are a longshot to make the playoffs, and if they do some how miraculously get in, they're not going anywhere this season.

For Carter to be effective, it seems he needs to be on a team that is already "there."
