A lot of Flyer fans don't like you if you aren't tough. There is still so much reference to "Flyers hockey" which means Broad Street Bullies and that kind of mentality by fans and management has hampered them as the game's grown. Carter still hasn't reached his ceiling as far as I'm concerned, he and Richards came into the league together and were always compared to one another, Richards hit, fought and hit his ceiling early in his career while Carter improved over time. He wasn't good defensively early but that improved, same with faceoffs. Now he's above average in both categories. I would like to see him take the body and finish his checks but those extra few seconds might also keep him from heading towards the other end of the ice and cost him some goals. I'm glad people appreciate him here cause he was crapped on by a lot of Flyer fans.
