And in a division where the other teams have Crosby, Malkin, Gaborik, Tavares, Kovalchuk, Parise, Richards, it matters. On top of all that, he has tons of offensive potential as well, see "Hat-Trick, Stanley Cup Playoffs Edition". Then we go to Voracek who is a big, strong, fast winger with plenty of potential, and a better WINGER then Carter ever was here. He's defensively accountable and a good playmaker.
I would do that Carter trade any day of the week, I just don't think the Richards trade was needed and when you put both of them together and the outcome in LA ... well ... only time will tell on what we got from LA more so than CBJ.
