Carney's the kind of quiet acquisition that could pay huge dividends in the playoffs.

"Quiet" is the key word. Its the kind of deal that slips under the radar because its smallish. He's 34 going on 36 year old (and a UFA) because next year is heading for a lockout (so goodbye 35). Big risk and every GM will account for that.

I don't see Carney fetching anything better than a 2nd rnder unless the Ducks pony up something else in the deal. Maybe something like Van's 1st rnder for Carney + 2nd.
