Seriously Carter is softer then Zednik...that's funny.
Whats so funny about it? I live in Edmonton, so watched a lot of Oiler games. Carter was so soft. Fans would complain that he wouldnt ever throw a hit.
I am also a Habs fan, so watch Zednik on a regular basis. He plays tough in the corners, and doesn't shy away from a physical game. He also drops the gloves when he has to. He's had a fight this year, and last year he dropped Chris Drury. I can't say the same from Carter. I think there is a misconception that Zednik is a pure finesse player, which he isn't. Any Habs fan will tell you that.
Not just all that, but Zednik is tough as hell to take the puck off of.
He seems really strong in his legs and thighs and you can see it in how he skates.
The main image I have of him is speeding down the wing, always going towards the boards, then sticking his arm out on the d-man, while dragging him the rest of the way..he's a tough guy to knock off the puck indeed.
Not just that, I think he's better and more talented. Got a really nice shot too.
