He wasn't even an impact player in the A last year.

And ask Philly fans what they think of Carter going for your package.

I'm not saying JJ doesn't have the tools to be a top pair guy, but it certainly isn't a lock (Carolina sure didn't think so).
well apparently you dont watch much of JJ then .. I believe he was the leading goal scorer for the states in the WC, and is improving every game he plays.. He chose to stay in college and carolina's management moved him, thank god it was to LA.

Philly fans think richards is more valuable than crosby buddy their opinons mean nothing to any king fan, JJ and a fifth for carter is fair considering they have not one good defenceman on their roster ...

I think he just meant that like Brendl, he thinks Tavares will bust big.

Yet, one thing that I will probably never understand is why people are so harsh on him after 120 freakin NHL games...that just makes no sense + if you say he's an average hitter, then I dont know what to think of your comments. I can mention other things of his game that seriously need to improve...
Read my post. I said above average. That shouldn't be too hard to understand. Good, but not great.

I can understand getting defensive when you feel a player on the Kings is getting knocked on, but I don't think you should let that color your replies and weaken the credibility of your words.

Kimmo Timonen is a quality veteran defender on the Philadelphia roster. Not to mention that they have solid young guys like Braydon Coburn, Ryan Parent, and Luca Sbisa on their team as well.
