TRADE: Carolina Hurricanes trade Ryan Carter and fifth-round draft pick 2011 to Florida Panthers for Cory Stillman.
The Canes add a veteran winger who is familiar with the organization. Stillman won two Stanley Cups, including one with Carolina in 2005-2006. Stillman is on pace for 34 points this season but thatís playing on a terrible Florida team. Moving back to Carolina should give his stats a little bump to end the season. Stillman will help push the Canes into the playoffs and his leadership will help keep those young players going when games get tight. Donít count on too much offense from Stillman as he is 37 years old and nearing the end of his career.
Florida is a team without any direction; are they rebuilding or just happy with status quo. Carter gives them a depth player who can play on the third or fourth line but has no fantasy value. Carter has yet to play more then 50 games in an NHL season and has never scored points in the double digits. Just what are the Panthers doing with this organization?
