Team(s) Interested: Columbus Blue Jackets- To the Blue Jackets, this deal couldn’t have been any better, sending Jakub Voracek as well as a first and third round pick in the 2011 entry draft to Philly for Jeff Carter. To Carter, this was the start of misery. He expressed his dissapointment in getting traded to Columbus in multiple interviews, but knew he could be part of what should have been a great year for the club. Carter was supposed to be getting superstar numbers with Rick Nash, but with the terrible start the team has faced, and mixed with injuries, things have not gone according to plan so far. Rumors started circulating around that Carter had requested a trade, but Renaud Lavoie of RDS, who contacted Carter’s agent, says he has not requested a trade….yet. But, its still believed he wants out of Columbus. The Blue Jackets only have 3 wins in 18 games, so it may be time to make a big deal very soon.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
