-hamhuis cap is 2m. seems to consistently get around 27 points and from what ive read can play anywhere. pk, pp, big minutes.

so basically it seems like we might have another carle, but maybe not as offensively skilled.

4yrs 3.5-3.8m
I wouldn't compare Hamhuis to Carle at all. I'm no expert on Hamhuis with him being out West his whole career, but his strength is a fairly physical defensive game, with an ability to effectively move the puck but he won't wow you. Carle's strength is an above average ability to move the puck, with little to no physicality, and occasional lapses in his defensive game.
