When hes on the ice, watch for the cherry. Iginla is another player that hangs around the neutral zone when the team needs quick one. There are certain players you just need to play a little further back with. Carle is just not a smart hockey player at times.
Carle was coming off the bench on a change on the Kovalev goal. It's hard to fault him there. Coburn was there also. Carle made some bad decisions last night. He made a wide inside turn that took him out of position on the first goal. Which I think Nitty has to make that save. And he tried to throw the puck across ice, and it ended up a breakaway for Latandresse. If it got through, it would have been a break for the Flyers the other way. He should have made the safe play, and chipped it up the boards
Let's remember that Carle is a developing player. He's playing his 3rd Season. He is not a finished product. He is very talented and skilled. As he gets more experienced, the mental errors should be corrected. The Flyers Coaching staff does well with young players.
