Jeff Carter could be available

I was listening to CKAC, and they said Jeff Carter could be available? Would you trade Jeff Carter for Carey Price? Could be a risky move to Price in the same conference and Carter`s recent injuries.

Carter and Spezza apparently, both would fit in quite well.

What they said though was from talks with people around the Philly organization, Carter would be the odd man out amongst their centers (I know he can play wing).

I would do that move in a heartbeat, but I doubt Philly would.

I like him but he's been invisible during the finals.

No trading Price to the Eastern conference. If we trade him, I want him winning Vezinas, far far far away.

He's playing at about 60% right now. He wouldn't have been back if this was the regular season, hence why he's been seeing minutes on the 4th line in the last few games.

Carter is still an elite player and I would trade Price for him, no question.

I'd do that trade in a second. It's true his playoff numbers are underwhelming (like 0.50 ppg) but you're talking a big 1st line center that can score and create. Not to mention he's on a good contract and he's still only an RFA at the end of it.

I'd much rather send a goalie for Hartnell and van Riemsdyk/Giroux. I feel that one of our goalies is more valuable than Hartnell alone.

Giroux maybe. JVR and Hartnell no thanks. I'd rather have Carter.

40 goal centerman? Any day of the week.

I'm hoping Philly's goaltending looses them the cup so they'd be inclined to get on of our young tenders.

Halak for Giroux would be good Let Pleks go, sign Marleau

Marleau-Gomez-Gionta
Cammy-Giroux-AKost

What do you mean Giroux maybe? The guy is bona fide. But don't worry, Philly wouldn't even include him in the trade for Bouwmiester, so there's no way they trade him to us for Price.

Of course the Habs make that deal but no way in hell the Flyers do.
It would take more than just Price, if we toss in AKots as well they might start returning our calls at least heh.

Why would the Flyers trade Carter? They're not in cap hell. They should have more than enough cap room to re-sign their players. They may want to acquire a goaltender, but they wouldn't need to trade Carter to get a good one.

JVR is the max return we should expect for Price in a trade coming from Philly, they'd want much more for Carter as in Price, Gorges and our 1st pick, they are in need of solid D on their 3rd pairing.

As far as Giroux goes, he's not goin anywhere unless they get an offer they can't refuse.

And no I doubt they'd start returning calls if Akost is in any offer going there.

Giroux over Carter is a maybe. Of course I'd take Giroux if we could. I don't know if I'd take him over Carter.

Nobody would prefer Hartnell and another top 6 player considering we already have Pleks? We still need size up front even with Carter. Our wings are weak. I'd rather bolster the wings if Pleks can regularly pop in 70 points during the regular season.

Pretty funny, everyone ignored the most important post of this thread.

I doubt Holmgren has put Carter on the market, amidst the Cup finals. This is classic speculation from radio hosts.

What are you on crack? You'd rather pay Plekanec 5m than Carter? What does getting carter have to do with bolstering the wings? You could still get guys in FA like Armstrong.

I'd like to trade Hamrlik for Hjalmarsson and Spacek for Vlasic.

Sorry dude. If Pleks hits 70 points a year at 4.5m and Carter gives you 90 (whose contract is up after next year), I'd prefer Hartnell's bulldog approach and 30 goals/30 assists and his playoff performance with a guy like van Riemsdyk to give our top 2 lines some jam and size on the wings. Guys like Armstrong at 3m is ridiculous. Would you prefer Carter and our current wingers or guys at Armstrong for 3m rather than Hartnell, Pleks and van Riemsdyk? I'd pick the latter.

If you get Carter, what do you do with Pleks anyways? He won't get much on the trade market in my opinion because he floats under the radar.
