While I was a big proponent of this deal, and still am, I am not going to labeling it a steal by any stretch. Carter's looked good, but it's been four games. Remember Penner having five points in his first six games?

Give it time. I'm obviously still very confident that we win this deal, depending on how good that 1st is of course, but four games is not enough time for me to proclaim anyone as stealing a deal.
