Since the Blue Jackets may not have Nikolai Zherdev in their roster this season, they went with backup plan A...or B..., signing Anson Carter to a 1-year deal at a reported $2.5 million per season, according to TSN.
Good, the Carter conversations are over. I'm sure we were all sick of that topic anyway.

When Bobby Clarke was asked about what he thought about what GM's could be saying about him in reference to the Kesler offer he said:

"I don't give a (expletive deleted) if nobody likes me, I could care less. But they shouldn't be getting mad at me, I didn't put the (offer sheet) rule in the collective bargaining agreement. If they're mad, they should call Gary Bettman and complain to him. Get mad at Gary Bettman. He's in charge of the rules, not me. I didn't realize there were some rules we're not allowed to use."

Will Carter be playing the top line with Modin and Federov?

That line might be fun to watch.

Or not.

The Jackets are looking half assed decent and the Blues will have two all right lines if they pick up Dvorak.

Anyone smell .500 hockey for the Wings this year??

Both Carter and Clarke f'ed up.

Carter because he's in nowhere land with only a 1 yr deal.

Clarke because the knives will be sharpened for him at every RFA turn.

Gotta love him - he's quotable. Not giving a damn what anyone thinks in a competitive sport is high on my list of qualities and virtues.

Clarke was quoted as saying "I didn't know Nonis had cancer...I wouldn't have said those things...Honest"
