<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>pensfan21</b></div><div>I think it was premature to re-sign Carter. Especially when we need more youth in the lineup. I just think the goal should be to do what is best to win another cup. It would have made fans happy and boosted ticket sales bringing Fleury back, but they didn't do it last offseason. I just don't think the right approach is to say rebuild in x amount of years for the front office. They should go year by year, see how the playoffs shake out, and then determine because things can change quickly.</div></div>

That's a fair assessment and I agree with a few of those points. You definitely have to take it as it comes and assess in real time. I was hoping the Carter contract would be a lower hit, but I do think he brings a lot to the team. Stanley Cup winner, playoff experience, position versatility, locker room leadership, blah blah blah. I know Pittsburgh isn't stocked with young prospects, but I bet the first year NHLers enjoy having a wiley vet in there to give em some atta boys.

Having said that, I think Pittsburgh's situation is unique in the sense that Crosby has 3 years left on his deal and he just secured his 17th straight PPG season. They owe it to him as much as anything to try to be competitive as long as he's there.

Also, you're right about Fleury, that would have made fans happy, but it would have cost them future assets, which by holding, help their approach towards the future. They can get him next year as a UFA if they really want him, I have a feeling he wants to end in Pittsburgh.
