Carter only played 15 or so regular season games for the Kings and scored 6 goals, I think. The Kings were a black hole on offense in 2011/12 that happened to get hot at the right time, have a hot goalie and get some favourable match-ups along the way to the Cup (Vancouver, St. Louis, Phoenix, New Jersey is about as great a run as you can get).

Edit: The Kings also scored 63 goals in 21 games after the Carter acquisition; I can't believe that led the league.
