There was something about that (Carter) on the trade rumors board; I believe it was determined to be a total fake.
I think they're probably done picking up guys. Nanne was on the radio the other day talking about a trade (he was expecting one), I guess, but I think he may not have known about the Branko signing at that point.
I think we're probably done, and I doubt we'd be interested in Carter even if we weren't. He's too streaky, from what I've seen. If we signed him, we'd probably be spending right up to the cap, leaving us no flexibility to make any playoff-run trades. And he's not the kind of player I think would be worth spending up to the cap for.
I think if Doug's got any more moves up his sleeve, it's most likely going to wait until the summer arbitration hearings have come and gone. There are some teams out there who may have salary cap problems if they lose their arbitration cases, and we might be able to get somebody good for relatively cheap. But I'm perfectly comfortable standing pat and going into the season with what we have right now. It's a much, much better hand than we've ever had to play before!

Assets Has excellent hockey sense and tissue-soft hands. Can find holes to avoid heavy traffic and loves to unleash his accurate shot from anywhere. Is also one of the league's top face-off men. Flaws Is small in stature and his skating is a major weakness. Defensively, he can be overmatched in one-on-one battles and isn't a physical player at all.
From what I read on the Nashville boards a while back, he had a surprisingly good season. Apparently somewhat out of character. I think his lousy skating would keep Jacque and Doug from getting him.
