Were Carter and Richards not cited as having been too party centric and arrogant for the team's liking? Obviously there is some media sensationalism because they tend to do that but given the abrupt nature of the trade, it does add credence to the claim. As for Kesler, well we happen to have a 100+ point centerman who is arguably the best playmaker in the game short of Crosby. Hurts less coming in second to that.
