I think this guy definetly should be on the radar for Sochi.
He's on my radar, but just on the outside looking in for me. In addition to the attributes you mentioned, he's also an effective PKer and can play both center or RW. I have him ahead of others like Perry, Eberle, and Neal, who would probably play similar roles. But, again, Carter has tremendous speed and wouldn't hurt us defensively.

Others may disagree, but he's right there as my #15 or #16 guy, and I'd look to him if a guy like Getzlaf falters in the playoffs.
