So why does it feel like I just used Jeff Carter as the headline in one of my posts?  Oh, because I did.  In fact here is a snippet of what I said just 2 days ago:  “Despite that enormous contract, other teams will trade for him too (I am of the opinion that Carter, not Nash will be the one headed out of Colombus).  And if you own Carter that is good news.   Literally anywhere...
