One thing about the internet: there’s a lot of “stuff” on it. Among the items that cropped up on Mr. Google’s menu this evening was a strange rumor about Jeff Carter of the Flyers.
Actually, it wasn’t even a rumor. It was an article written around a tweet (how’s that for new media?) from someone named “Incarcerated Bob” that documents a trade rumor. Apparently, the Leafs are interested in Carter, with a first pick, prospects (Kadri?) and Carl Gunnarsson involved.
Who knows how much there is to the story. However, the Oilers are mentioned as a possibility, with picks and youth the return.
What say you? Is Jeff Carter worth pursuing? Or will Jay Feaster get him? Carter has an 11-year contract (why do teams do this?) and is a little better than some of the Oiler centermen.
