Jackets fan here in peace.

I liked Carter and was hoping that Howson would build around him and Nash. So much for that.

Philly fans watched him a lot longer than me, but from what I saw he is a very smooth skater, and has a tremendous wrist shot, which he can let loose with authority while in stride. He also knows what to do with the puck in front of the net. And yes, he will go to the front of the net and score the dirty goals.

The only thing that I thought he was weak at was his D-zone coverage. In our game with Chicago, Toews made Carter look like a tree stump when he skated around him and scored. If he is happy to be in L.A. that will be a big plus. He obviously wasn't happy here.

Hopefully the trade works out for both teams.
