Big talent though. Maybe he will be the Flyers' Cris Carter.
Carter wasn't good defensively as a rookie - no question. He had to learn to play that side of the puck, as he'd never been asked to do that before. However, he was very, very good defensively in the last few years.

It appears that Carter suffers from Mike Schmidt syndrome. Making something look easy does not mean it's effortless.

Choking is an easy out. You've had **** pointed out to you numerous times, and I don't have the patience to do it all over again. It's all Carter's fault. If only he could play in net...
