Was hoping for a better return but in all honesty his value is probably at an all-time low right now. I'll just copy-paste what I wrote on the trade board:

You'd be very lucky to get a player of his caliber in the 5th round, the Kings did but now they trade him for another 5th rounder. That's like winning the lottery and buying lottery tickets with your winnings

Oh well, there wasn't any room for him on the Kings. He needs wingers who can score and the Kings don't have that in their bottom 6 and if a top 6 center goes down Carter just takes that spot, so there was realistically no way he'd ever make it with the Kings. He can play wing but his strengths are as a playmaker so he's best suited as a center.

I thought he'd fetch at least a mid round pick but he hasn't shown much in the past few years on the team and his AHL numbers aren't what they should be. Add to that the Russian factor (even if he seems committed to the NHL) and him asking for a trade I can see how the value is low. Good buy-low deal for the Devils though.
