An answer that could fill in a host of blanks


New Los Angeles King Jeff Carter
From Jeff Carter's media scrum in advance of tomorrow night's Los Angeles Kings-Columbus Blue Jackets game at Nationwide Arena:
Question: What’s your take on the whole situation with Rick (Nash)? Is that awkward for a team? 
CARTER: “I don’t really know what to say to that. I’m not going to say too much. It was definitely awkward, I guess, would be a pretty good word to describe it.’’
You don't say.

(But which "situation with Rick" is he discussing?  His inability to develop any chemistry with Nash?  Rumors of locker room friction?  Nash's desire to leave town?  Something else?)

  1. Sounds amazingly almost as vague as his comment to Puck Daddy:

    Question: There's a segment of the (Columbus) fan base, as you know, that has the opinion that you never really wanted to be here? What would you say to people who think that?

    CARTER: "I think that's tough to say. I don't know if that's completely true.

    "Completely"? Weird. Amazing he couldn't find stuff to say while he was here with such talent to tiptoe around answering much at all. And I'm not being snarky in saying that.
