The Canucks only had so much cap room. They offered Carter $1.8 million, and couldn't offer him more. So you're saying rather than see what he could get, Carter should have just accepted it, no questions asked? Left $700,000 on the table?
Pyatt signed for about fair market value too. If the Canucks had said $900,000, take it or leave it, with no room for negotiation, there's no reason to think he would have signed either.

Maybe, but consider this.
-Carter has proved that he has chemistry with the Sedins'
-Carter has now proved that he is useless without the Sedins'.
-Carter, when playing with the twins, PLAYS like a guy worth 1.5 mill+ (i.e. 33 goals in 05/06).
-Carter isn't young, but is only in his early 30's.
Most people want the Canucks to make a huge trade for a superstar RW'er, so that he can play with the Sedins'.
My argument is that Carter, for far less money, has already proven that he can score tons of goals playing with the twins.
I concede that my comment of "I'd pay Carter 1.5 mill" is....a little absurd" but I'd still take Carter at a relatively cheap price (1 mill?).. Carter may be worth less than $1 mill. on any other team, but not in Vancouver.
With his chemistry with the twins, Carter could be extremely valuable to our power play.
And again - we wouldn't have to spend $4-5 mill on a superstar RW.
Fair points Farhan ... the question then would be what do you do with Pyatt ...you have just signed him to a contract at 900k/yr ... he is 25 turning 26 ... Carter is 33 ... do you drop Pyatt a line, trade him or do you let him develop more with the Sedin's on the #1 line... could he potentially score 30+ goals with the Sedins at only 900k a year ? .

scores 30, and he'll have a 950k cap hit.
