So, the party animals reunite just on a bigger stage. Jeff Carter will rejoin former Philadelphia Flyer teammate Mike Richards for the Los Angeles Kings. Carter was traded from the Columbus Blue Jackets for defenseman Jack Johnson.
Carter never really fit into Columbus who had much higher hopes for him (25 pts in 35 games, -11 rating). The team is struggling though, as rumors about trading their franchise player Rick Nash has been circulating. Could, however, this be a similar situation as in Philly? Is Carter a bad guy to have in the locker-room? Time will tell if Los Angeles begins to separate as a team or if they regain their scoring touch. From a fantasy perspective, it’s looking good for Carter owners, so ride it out or trade up quickly before his play determines his worth.
