Carter apparently available, chances Poile is making a call?..

So Jeff Carter is available apparently, just a few short months after being by Columbus. David Poile monitoring this possibly? I hope so. He can play Center, he can play Wing & mostly importantly score. Would this be the Top 6 forward that convinces Weber & Suter to stay? Pondering this leaves many questions. 10 years left @ 5.75 million? If we take that salary on will we have enough to feild a competitive team if Sutes & Webs re-up? Would Columbus deal in the divison? What would it take to get him from them? My opinions.. I think we could take on 5.75 million for 10 years, thats just a bit more than we are paying Legwand, Erat, & Fisher I do believe. Maybe not actual salary but close cap hit wise. I think Poile could figure out how to feild a competitive team paying Suter 7 million, Weber 8 million, Rinne 7 million, & taking on Carter's almost 6 million. It would just take us letting Legwand or Erat walk at the end of their contracts. I also think that Columbus would deal him to whatever team that would take him, so I would say yes that they would deal within their own divison. Finally, the fun part. If I were Poile I would be on the phone floating an offer of Blum, Lindback, & a 1st to Howson & see where it goes from there.
