Considering the return we got for him, I'd say that was accurate. It wasn't that anybody thought Carter was a bad player at all; just that he could be frustrating at times and would ultimately provide more value to the team in a trade than he would on the team.

As for JVR, I don't think many people seriously considered tagging him with the B word. There was always too much talent there, and I think most sane fans recognized that he would eventually be a useful goal scorer.
Nah, between not getting it done in the playoffs and the media **** storm Carter left for similar reasons to Richards. People just lost faith and got tired. Wanted a new era even if it wasn't for the best necessarily. Until he was traded I never stop heard people complaining about missing an open net in the SCF.
