That's what the NHL is all about these days. He holds his own defensively. We shouldn't be expecting him to be perfect or mistake free.
Carle will be more effective at even strength( kind of like Jay-Bo). I think rushing the puck and stretch passes out of his zone are his plus assets. D-men on average take about 2 yrs more to develop IMO. Goalies, usually the longest.
