    He was one of the few to survive the purge.
    Of himself, Brown, Doughty, Kopitar , and Quick it does make the most sense to trade him

    I wonder if he didn't want a trade or threatened to retire.
    We would be f***ed by the cap recapture if he retired, right?

    Exactly, the entire point of a rebuild is to move out aging players for picks and prospects. You are supposed to struggle, you aren't supposed to have ready made replacements step in seamlessly. You step back to grow forward.

    The reason Carter is still here is that he was too hurt and unproductive to deal over the past two years. If leadership and/or example setting were the purpose, the Kings would have been far better off retaining Clifford or Lewis.

    I like Carter and have always been a fan, but his race has been run. You can see it in his body language. He is constantly talking to opposition goalies in a friendly manner after saves, he doesn't dig in on backchecks anymore, he is on the banquet circuit now and just pleasantly playing out his string. The competitive fire is gone and that isn't a great example for kids.

    As far as replacing him, unfortunately Frk has been hurt, but in all honesty you really wouldn't be losing much production from that spot if you had Luff holding that place until a better option is developed.

    Jesus, I honestly forgot all about him

    I must hate consonants. I probably am due for some sensitivity training

    Yes, if Carter had retired the Kings would have been on the hook for the recapture penalty. This is the major reason it has been too late for a while now.

    The time to pull the trigger on a Carter trade would have been at the deadline in the 2015-16, 2016-17, or even the 2017-18 season. I my mind 2016-17 was the right time. I think if Carter had retired then, he would have been leaving around $18M on the table. No way he was going to quit and not collect most of that money.

    Carter was never traded at the dead line because his deal was still long term, teams are adding late 20's soon to be UFAs not mid 30s with 4 years on his contract

    Frk played one game, then got hurt again. same groin injury I think he suffered at training camp. Weird way he did it too, just a simple stop up along the boards,

    Part of me wonders if they should try Lizotte with AA/Carter again.

    Get Vilardi with Moore/Grundy?

    Then again if JAD back, I really want to see that line together again.
