Understandable, I get their hate for Carter, but they should probably be smart enough to not call him "useless". I hate Blake with a white hot passion, but he was far from useless in Colorado
The Drizzle is actually a Flyer fan and long time Carter hater. I think he posts there because he likes Bobrovsky. He's been pissed at Carter for not scoring in game 6 of the 2010 final like many other Flyer fans. Of course they also refuse to give credit to both the Hawks' dman and goalie for their roles in the play.
I can understand their hatred for him not wanting to play there, but they can't say that he didn't try. He had an injured ankle and had 15 goals and 25 points in 39 games with 8 powerplay goals. That is over a 30 goal pace and the team was playing at the bottom of the barrel. Carter did his job despite not wanting to be there.
Also, don't troll their forums. If you are going to read them, fine, but don't go there with intentions to argue, it never ends well.
"I think part of his game is he’s over aggressive at times, which I like. We’ll tame that. I’d rather tame a lion than paint stripes on the kitty cat." - Dean Lombardi discussing Brayden McNabb
I don't know why I'm posting this - just hearing about Hickey & Lokti made me look him up to see how he's doing.
Thanks for doing it. I would never have thought to look him up. I hope he gets his career going in CAR. If he can get it in gear there he could become an alright 4rth liner. Not as well as I thought he would turn out but he did make the NHL and is hanging on to a career and that is a good thing.
That contract for RDp was truly awful under the best of circumstances. Its sad that he has had so many injuries but that should be a warning to anyone who think they should rush their prospects up before they are ready or before the team calling them up are ready.
