    God I hope not.

    Carter is going to get around 3 million and be a total waste of dollars.

    The Leafs sill sign him for 6 years at 3 million per…

    because they are THAT stupid.

    Carter better than Roberts but can’t spend more than 2mil on him

  3. Aetherial says:

    Carter is more durable … because he plays like he doesn’t want to wreck his manicure.

    Roberts brings a LOT more to the table on a short term deal. The Leafs need to be looking short term given their dollars at the moment and how much they have tied up in Dmen in the next 3/4/5 years.

    I know what people are thinking…

    Carter is younger, can score more goals, a long term investment, is native to the area…

    Not to metion…is being let go by his current team as they see his production as a result of linemates Sedin twins, is very sporatic at best with production, has flopped alomst everywhere, has never been worth what was paid for him, only produces with top line leading us to believe he has always been carried by better players…

    Sorry but I have to pass on this guy. He is another Antropov in the waiting.

    I say this NOW if Toronto sign Carter to a long term, more that 1 (maybe 2 years if he produces) I will start looking for another team QUICK.

    After many positive moves in the right direction, Roberts aside, this will be one of the DUMB moves of T.O. worse than last years signings in my opinion.

    Maybe I’m too harsh, but this guy is so inconsistant that Daigle or McCabe would be jealous. On the other hand, McCabe would feel better about himself as now not being the most inconsistant player on the team.

    I will call for JFJs head instantly if he makes a deal with Carter. Again, if its a long term deal, then I’m a (bigger) Sens Fan for the Season.

    I’ll be shopping for a Sabres Jersey if they sign him…

    I am really scared, after they have done all this other stupid sh*t, that they will sign him for like 3 years at 3 million per, or something.

    Honesly, I would have rather seen them do NOTHING and pickup other teams spare parts in late August for 1-year contracts, than to do what they have done.

    I don’t care about this year. They aren’t likely to even make the playoffs again and yet now we are capped out, not only now, but will be for at least 3 more years … of futility.

    Anson Carter may not be worth 3 milion, but the leafs only have 3 mil to spend so who can they gets for 3 mil, better than carter!

    I personally would prefer to see Roberts finish his career in Toronto, but i know the leafs would be better off with carter.

    How in god’s name is this dumb….you think the sedin twins made him better…or was it the other way around? I guess it was the worst move ever that he represented Canada at the Worlds (and played extremely well)…God knows Hockey Canada Couldn’t choose players if there life depended on it….????

  8. Aetherial says:

    That 3 million to spend is not for one player.

    Furthermore, if my choices are Carter at 3 million, or a kid at 500K… I take the kid and save the cap room for a pickup at the deadline from some team that has cap struggles or is dumping to rebuild.

  9. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    what “kid” are you talking about. Ondrus? Williams?

    if we don’t get some offensive help we’ll be the ones dumping payroll at the deadline

  10. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    sundin is carried by skilled players too, should we dump him.

    gil had a bad season

    kubina had a bad season

    carter had a fantastic season

    and you are complaining about possibly getting carter!!!!!!! get real
