Um, because he hasn't played as well since?

I've literally watched Jeff Carter play hundreds of hockey games. He doesn't need a playmaker, he doesn't even tend to play well with playmakers, though he had a bit of a nice run with G a season ago. He's at his best carrying the puck and using his size/speed advantage to get positioning on the defense in order to fire his lethal writer. It's how he scores the overwhelming majority of his goals. He tends to play his best with crash and bang types, like when he was on a line with Knuble & Upshall, or like his 46 goal season, when he played with Hartnell & Lupul.
