Jeff Carter - Trade Analysis and Impact

Talk about adding an impact player!  The Jeff Carter deal was finalized yesterday.  What kind of impact will have it on the Blue Jackets and how will the lines look for next season?

Players Impacted: Who will play w/ the dynamic duo of Nash and Carter?  One author says, "The lucky set-up man on the wing wins the lottery. Your natural instinct is to put Kristian Huselius there, but not so fast - Derick Brassard won just 46.6% of his face-offs - that is worse than Sami Pahlsson, Derek McKenzie, Antoine Vermette and RJ Umberger. Move Brassard to the wing. They may not do that at first, but I believe it's inevitable."

Any thoughts on moving Brassard to the wing?

Also, it appears that Ryan Johansen may receive a bit more time to develop his game, and may no longer be a lock to make the team. But long-term, that could be a could thing.

What are your thoughts on how this impacts Ryan Johansen?

Projected Top 6:

Nash-Carter-Brassard
Umberger-Vermette-Huselius

Not sure on the 3rd line...?

See below for poll on how Carter will be utilized at ES.
