Potentially in Play: Jeff Carter, Kristian Huselius, Sammy Pahlsson, Rick Nash
What They Should Do
Wait on Jeff Carter. Let's face it, Columbus is flat-out awful, but let's not blame Carter for their meager defense and dreadful goaltending performances.
Pittsburgh made a big trade last season to add James Neal near the deadline. He scored one goal in 20 games. Carter's sample has not been much more than Neal's last year. Yet, had the Pens given up on their acquisition so quickly, they would have missed out on a masterful goal scoring performance this season.
If they don't trade Carter, Nash, needless to say...stays!
