As you can see in my sig I own both OV and Carter and as an owner I would gladly move them for Perry and Zetterberg. I do still think that OV can turn it around but to be honest I'm feeling less in less confident that he will. Originally I thought it was the whole coaching debacle and changing WAS to a defensive system. Now I'm left thinking it's that massive contract that's impacting his overall play...with that said it's still very early in the "Oates era" so I'm still holding out hope.
As for Carter? Stick a fork in him. He's done as far as I'm concerned. I don't see ever surpassing 70pts again and frankly I think he's in tough to reach 60pts on a semi-regular basis.
I do like Perry a lot but you're pretty stacked at RW. He's in a contract year so I'm expecting good numbers out of him this year and I think he has the talent to continue to flirt close to a PPG for several more seasons.
Zetterberg will likely start to see his numbers decline but I still think he'll be a consistent 65-75pts guy for many seasons.
I take this deal.
