Ultimately, that isn't what matters. You argued that Kane would have been more 'reviled' than Carter was.

Well, not if Kane produced at a PPG clip in the playoffs. Players who show up in recent playoffs don't get targeted for the hate in this town. It was interesting that you brought up Briere. Playoff production has been Briere's saving grace, and it has prevented his contract from being viewed as a gigantic bust. Carter did not have the playoff results, so he did not get the pardon from fans. The underlying reasons don't matter.
