Yeah and it was also Carle's first year that he actually played with a competent defenseman. Coburn has played with guys like Derian Hatcher, Jason Smith and Kimmo Timonen and he continually crapped the bed for two years. Coburn has shown he just doesn't get it mentally when it comes to the game. And before anyone says he had a good playoff run, he also had a good playoff run in 07-08. I'm not convinced the mental midget has what it takes to keep up his performance. I'd rather keep Carle because at least he's shown some consistency in his game.
