Carter would have been a terrible fit for us. Him finally waking up (over halfway into the playoffs) doesn't change that. Not to mention Columbus wanted 1 great piece for him, not a package of smaller pieces, which is all we could have offered. He needs to be with his BFF Mikey in a party city. Very very happy we didn't make the Carter mistake like Columbus.
Getting a new #1C over an offseason is a very tall order. There are teams out there who have been trying to get one for years. There is a lot of luck involved. The days of building your team through trades and free agency are over. You have to build from within, but the catch-22 being we don't have a great track record of drafting and developing top forwards (we're improving though).
I do agree that this is what our team is missing. Pretty much all the conference winners in the past decade have had a bona fide #1C. All we can do at this point is cross our fingers and hope one becomes available.
