In a league including SOG, Carter definitely gets a nice boost to value. But the OP doesn't list SOG as a stat in his league....he's pretty much a one category player in this league (points) and I don't necessarily like the direction his scoring has been going, and playing in super defensive LA won't help.
I would gladly package one of those two d-men plus Carter for OEL. If Kulikov could stay healthy I'd keep him but injuries look like they might just always be an issue with him. And although Smith might fill out a lot of categories someday, it's too early to take a chance on him.
OEL is already arguably the most valuable player from this group, and in short time should be the best player, as well.
