They probably should have dealt Carter if he wasn't happy with the org, but the return was brutal.
OK, I may have overrated Johnson. I thought he did well with Columbus toewards the end.
Also, it may have been the best offer for Carter. Carter's overrated and maybe GMs are beginning to see this. I think he'll never come close to 46 goals again.
