And it was such a major concern going into the season and really all the way up until now. If they keep it up this is a completely different team.
Matt Carle is the most improved player on this team. Period. He has been a solid passer, a good defender, and has a potent shot at times. He seems to quietly do his job night in and night out; I've read a lot of talk about possibly dealing him, and I can't believe we'd consider that. Right now, he MIGHT be the best D-man on the team. Team USA is really missing out, I think.
I continue to be surprised by how often he pinches, how deep he goes, and how infrequently the team pays for it. Seems like he knows which plays are risky and which ones aren't. That's an extremely valuable talent to have.
