Not surprised by this, Reilly has another tall target to hit now. Still think Scott Milanovich did the right thing, as did Montreal in getting rid of Carter. There comes a time when talented players cannot help the team win games and should be let go. Edmonton just got stronger, now where does Carted end up?
