More About Jeff Carter Columbus Blue Jackets Jerseys
With a deadly combination of size, speed and skill Jeff Carter is the sort of player that would be a dream acquisition for any NHL coach. Unfortunately for the Philadelphia Flyers, the economic realities of the the league got in the way of that dream. They desperately needed to land a bona fide number one goalie, and in achieving that by signing Ilya Bryzgalov to a lucrative 9 year deal they needed to shed salary. Unfortunately that meant Jeff Carter was the odd man out.
The Columbus Blue Jackets are the happy beneficiaries of the Flyers' conundrum, and in Carter they land a player that is in the prime of his career and will make an immediate impact on the ice.
Perhaps the person happiest about this deal is Rick Nash. For years Nash has had to carry almost the entire offensive load for the Blue Jackets and the arrival of Carter will not only relieve some of the pressure off of him, but also give him someone nearly as skilled as he is to play with.
The addition of Carter should also help the Blue Jackets threaten to make playoffs again. They reached the post-season for the first time in 2009, but have followed that up with a pair of sub-.500 seasons. If Carter's arrival can turn back the clock a couple of years you can bet that Jeff Carter Blue Jackets jerseys will be among the hottest sports merchandise in the city.
