Why would we not move Carter back to center? Plenty of Wings on this roster now, and especcially in your scenario. What is the fascination with crowbaring a guy who has played center his entire career into the wing position?
The only reason that he is playing there now is because when we acquired him, King and Nolan only had a few games under there belt, Gagne was hurt, and Penner was playing horrible.
Now all four of those guys are more then vaible options in our top 6 (Nolan maybe maxes out as a 3rd liner).
Situation has completeley changed now, time for Carter to go back to center. And its a no-brainer if the kings were to add Parise as well.
Despite all the warnings from Flyer fans regarding how Richards and Carter just can't play together it worked out just fine.
