You know, I see this a lot from the Carle-bashers, just like the oft-repeated bit of hyperbole that Giroux has a weak shot. Carle certainly isn't Pronger along the walls, but he's nowhere near a ****ing pushover.

Also, his passing isn't good. It's ****ing amazing and goes completely under-appreciated.
