Never called him a joke.

There are other players that are much better defensively that will be on Team Canada. It is about who is hot. Carter hasn't scored 40 goals in 4 years. Hall is a better player right now and I don't think it is all that close.

Don't really disagree about any of this. Just think Hall is better in every way except for two-way game (which is overrated, Carter is no Datsyuk) and playing center.

Bergeron, Toews, Couture, Sharp...endless amount of possible role players.

Jeff Carter's two-way game is really getting overrated here. You talk about him like he's some sort of combination of Lucic, Bergeron, and Hall.
