I don't blame him for wanting out. If he were 21 it would be a different story
I'd be as pissed as he was, but I find it hard to believe I'd sign a deal that would allow me to be traded to a team I'd hate to play for, for the next 11 years of my life.

Look I acknowledge he got screwed over, but its in his contract. He should know exactly what could happen, or get better representation.

Just dont see why Carter is so special. Dubinsky, Anisimov were traded from a better team. Could easily argue now, that Jack Johnson was traded from a better team as well. They have been nothing but professional if not moreso since their arrival.
