Blum is a good one, but they are very young once you get past Weber, Klein, and Gill. I hear good things about Josi though.

"It's a fresh start, a new beginning," Carter said. "Columbus is a team that has been working its way up, building something here. They have a lot of young players that are really starting to come into the game."

Carter, who signed a long-term deal with Philadelphia and had become part of the fabric of that much-beloved franchise, was initially reluctant to comment on the trade to the media or even meet with Blue Jackets officials. But he said that was because he was in shock after signing that 11-year, $58 million contract in November with the Flyers, the club he broke into the NHL with in 2005.

After Howson, coach Scott Arniel and Nash visited him, though, he was satisfied with what we heard.

"When they left my house that day I was very, very excited," Carter said. "I'm trying to come in here and be a piece of the puzzle and turn things around and win some hockey games."
Turns out Carter was a big piece, just a different puzzle.
