Carter Next year?

Can we expect to Cater in the regular line up next year?
Of course if there is an NHL season...

Even with Handzus, Roenick, Primeau and Comerie.

Possible trades?
Move a C to the W?
Expected production from him?

My guess:

Roenick goes for a scoring wingger and Carter takes the 4th spot.

I think that next year is a little early but anything is possible. I think that 2 years is a better projection. I think he is the type of player that will jump straight from junior to the NHL, I don't think that he will play at all in the AHL. Carter and Richards will also be fighting to play the same position on the same team, in relatively the same time, so it's going to be tough.

at the moment, there is no need to rush either of them.

I wouold think let Carter play another year in the CHL, then maybe one in the AHL, then let him make the team only as a top six forward. He isn't a 3rd or 4th line type of player

I'd send him to the AHL next year. He has played for a pretty bad team in the OHL for 2 or 3 years. Trading Roenick with that contract? Good Luck.

You are SO right!!!!

that was the element I forgot to take care of...

He's simply could not bring some good things on a 3rd or 4th line.

However, I think he will be in the AHL like FlyHigh says and for the same reason,

Carter cannot go to the AHL next year, he is too young.

Roenick has a no trade clause next season. The final year of his deal, he does not.

There is absolutely no point in sending Carter to the CHL, he is already head and shoulders better than most there.

Playing Carter, or Richards at that, on 3rd or 4th line would get them shipped off a la Justin Williams.

i'm just glad that we're stacked at centre for a long time.
there's no reason why we wouldn't see richards in a flyer jersey by 2005-06...the kid is ready!

I could see the flyers trading Zues for a winger to free up space up the middle. There will be plenty of suitors for Zues and the flyers could use a winger in return. Maybe we'll get Willy back!

They moved Comrie to wing to make space for Sharp, who is a natural centre. Handzus isn't real strong on faceoffs this year, so he could be experimented on a wing if he's still around in '05... For Carter, I think another year in the OHL would be okay. I said Horton should have been given another year of juniors for him to prove he could dominate over a full season. I think the same for Carter, to a lesser extent of domination maybe. When eligible, I'd put both Carter and Richards into the top 6 on the Phantoms, get them used to playing a ton at the pro level. Call them up every now and then for injury or *cough* suspension substitutions.

Carter is NOT ready for the NHL...

If you watched him in the WJC, you saw that Carter has great talent and sense, but does not yet possess the consistency needed to be a top-two line center in the NHL.

Especially defensively -- Carter had quite a few lapses in the defensive zone that lead to scoring chances against very inferior competition in the WJCs. He actually had a better game against the USA than he did against Ukraine and teams like that.

Yes, he would help the Flyers offensively, but Hitch would not tolerate the kind of defensive lapses that Carter still seems to be prone to. Invite him to camp, then give him another year in the OHL (he's too young for the AHL, unless I'm mistaken) and have him ready to be a star in the 2005-6 season.

Then again, guys like Horton who seemed nowhere near ready for the NHL have stepped it up and become solid pros at Carter's age. If he has a stellar camp next year...

He won't get Horton or Staal's icetime on the Flyers though. It may actually hurt his development to bring him in w/ all their depth at center.

NOt as much as leaving him in the OHL will.
