    Has anyone seen any of the Phantom's post season games? He is tearing it up and I was wondering if he has looked as good as the stats indicate?

    You'd think he'd need adjustment time. Wow.

    He played there last year, he knew what he was getting in to. Plus he had 3 regular season games to get back into the groove.

    You're selling the kid short, yeah he had an idea of what pro hockey was all about "3 whole games", but come on 6 goals in 8 play-off games is impressive for a veteran AHLer, let alone a 19 or 20 year old.

    He's dominating but he is somewhat familiar w/ the way they play and their players. I think Richards has been just as impressive. I don't think he's ever played or even practiced w/ the Phantoms until his junior season was over this year. Seems like he's fit right in and then some.

    What a nice dilemma we have in Philadelphia. Two young centermen who could easily be the number one guy in a couple of years time. Thank you for good scouting and great trade with Phoenix.

    Where am I selling him short? I said he's been better than his stats indicate. I just pointed out that he played with the Phantoms last year, so he knew what he was getting into. 3 games wouldn't have been a lot if he hadn't been here last year, but he was, so they were kinda like preseason games to get back into the swing of AHL play. That doesn't change the fact he's tearing it up in playoff hockey.

    What I have seen from the Philly games via webcast is that Carter specifically, and to some extent Richards, they are both around a very talented core of veteran AHL players, and other talented kids like Umberger, Pitkanen ect.

    Carter and Richards have been impressive no question, but they also have great supporting casts, and from what i've seen, guys like Ready, Sim, Sharp have set Carter up many times for nice plays.

    It's been a team effort, don't sell the other guys short. Carter isn't just tearing threw the league, statistically yes, but alot of other guys in Philly are making it happen too.

    True, I didn't realize that you were the same poster who mentioned that. IMO the Flyers are turning into this decades Devils in the sense that you guys are snagging some excellent talent while having a winning team, too bad Woywitka hasn't panned out better for the Oil, I would've loved getting either Carter or Richards in the Comrie trade instead!!! I've never been too high of Jeff, what are your thoughts on him considering that the Flyers drafted him???

    And I'm going to have to respectully disagree with you here, especially with Carter. Besides the fact that Ready sucks (frankly, the only offensivly talented vet on the Phantoms is Sim since Murphy doesn't dress. Kane, Fedoruk, Ready and Meloche are all checkers) and has almost no offensive ability, many of Carter's goals have been mostly individual efforts. Breakaways, deking defenders out of their jocks, he's scored because he's just more talented then the people he's playing against. Sharp is a good linemate, and it's not like he's a one man show, but the kid had 9 shots in his first game. He carried the team offensivly through a series and has brought them to another level. Sure, the Phantoms are a good team without him. They are a great team with him.

    Agreed

    I'm in Philly and have had a chance to watch the Phantoms several times this season and in the past. Their M.O. without Carter in the lineup was basically play it safe, chip in a few and rely on Nitty's excellent goaltending to win games. They're a different team with Carter in the lineup. Much more creative and exciting. Much more dominating in the other team's end. I didn't anticipate Carter making such a big difference, but his impact has been plain to anybody familiar with the team.

    Not a huge surprise. Upgrade of his teammates produces good results with a talent like Carter.

    Carter with two goals tonight to help end this playoff series vs the WBS pens. So far Carter is at the top of the Calder cup scoring for all players, with 13 points (9 goals 4 assists) in 11 games.

    You mean to say he is *on his way to being* Mats Sundin part 2.

    Carter hasn't even seen a shift at the NHL level. And Sundin is going to be a HoFer.

    Just at this point Carter still looks like he has the potential to be an all-star center in the NHL. Which is all you can hope for someone two years after the draft.

    What's even sicker is having Carter and Richards coming
    up to the big club together after having been teammates
    for Canada and now the Phantoms. These guys are winning
    post season games at a young age.

    Please stop saying that. Joe Nieuwendyk part 2 is that more appropriate moniker. Joe's a winner.
