Carter 100% available

According to TSN's Darren Dreger, Columbus Blue Jackets forward Jeff Carter is a 100 per cent available on the trade market, however his expensive price tag might prevent teams from acquiring him.

The 27-year-old has 10 years remaining on his current contract at an annual cap hit of $5.27 million, and those numbers have become a significant issue for most teams looking for a strong versatile forward like Carter.

Furthermore, the Jackets are looking to acquire a high draft pick and a good roster player in return for Carter.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have denied rumors stating that they were exploring the option to deal for Carter, as GM Brian Burke refuses to commit to such a loaded contract.

In 30 games with the Jackets this season, Carter has posted 10 goals and seven assists for 17 points.
