Just minutes after Michael Leighton let in a weak goal to Patrick Kane to lose the Stanley Cup, an anonymous commenter posted "I'll give u Carter for Thomas" on this post from February. Let's face it, Philly may have been a goaltender away from hoisting the Stanley Cup this year. Leighton was underwhelming on the Sharp goal that tied the game at two in the 2nd period as well. Philadelphia will be clamoring for goaltending in the offseason (they only have Boucher under contract for $925K). As I noted in that post, a Carter for Thomas swap makes sense because of the equal cap hits. Philly's fans are probably upset with Carter right now (should have buried that one in the waning moments of the 3rd period and didn't do much after coming back), but like Marc Savard for the Bruins, he probably wasn't ready to come back when he did for the Flyers.
We'll take him here in Boston. That would be the sniper the Bruins don't have.
