Against Buffalo he had his knee injured in what...the second game? I recall he had a shoulder injury in 09, too.

I don't "move on" because people here haven't moved on from the silly notion that he chokes nonstop. This fanbase's hate for Carter never made sense to me. I'm not even a Carter fan (believe it or not, I don't really care), I just don't like seeing statements that have no grounding in reality; examples: Leighton is an NHL goalie, Bryzgalov has been just fine, Carter chokes nonstop/sucks. None of those statements are realistic. There's been a clear double standard involving Carter for years, where he has zero margin for error.
