The move will allow us to sign an elite goaltender. I think we have plenty of scoring depth to compensate the loss of "high and wide" Carter.
There is more to size than hitting people. One of the most important physical traits on D is reach.

If Richards is traded, too, this team just got a whole lot less interesting to care about.

I have a feeling this isn't going to be the last shoe to drop. Something had to have happened behind the scenes none of us know about.

You can't seriously be gutting a team of two of their young superstar players when they are 2 years removed from the cup and another year from the 2nd round...

sure carter is a great player, but he was never healthy when it mattered..

plus which package would you rather have:

Bryzgalov, Voracek, 1st rd (8th overall) pick, 3rd rd pick

OR

Carter, Clackson, 3rd rd pick

We can't say our team got worse from this trade.

LOL, Leafs in the hunt. If Richards is traded to the Leafs I'm shooting myself. In the head.

The Flyers better be getting a player like Weber back. They could then draft that Swedish center from the Kitchener Rangers.

Meh, it was either get rid of one high cap player, or shred off like 3-4 lower cap players.

I would rather trade Carter, because we have Giroux and JVR emerging as stars. Still have veterans like Briere and Richards. Voracek isnt as bad as people think. We also have the 8th overall pick, we could pick up a top 4 d-men or another good forward.

I have to agree. Something big had to have gone down if they trade both Richards and Carter.

What the ****.

Seriously not trying to be a troll here, but how the hell can you honestly say that Homer hasn't been BRUTAL when it has come to cap management?!
