I really don't get the fascination hab fans have with Carter. He can put up points, but is extremely streaky. We have a guy like him in Richard Zednik. He is a guy you don't count on, and is never going to be the leader on ice, or go to guy. I still remember him going something like 20 or 30 games without a goal when he played in Edmonton. Really, he is a perfect fit in New York. He is not the type of veteran I want the habs youth to learn from. Get the Mike Griers, Ethan Moreau's of the league, Guys the kids can learn from and know they are giving 110% every shift.

Frankly I think Carter would be eaten alive here. How many people were on Zednik this year. If he was traded here, I wouldn't give up any prospect, simply roster players like Rivet or Sundstrom, maybe a pick (not a first).
