I'll take the Halibut Hurricane....4 oz of rum, 4 oz of coconut encrusted fish blended with ice served in a tall glass. Hell, I'll drink it on a beach in Trinidad Cuba just to stick with your narrative!
Carter fits if Patrick can't go. That's about it. You don't have to trade JVR right now either, you would have to LTIR Ghost until I think the playoffs which isn't particularly good unless you plan to use for just fill in duty and hope he doesn't screw up too badly.
All this said, I was far more interested in Toffoli than Carter. Now that's off the table (for less than I'd expected), I'm guessing this is a moot point.
