Carle's offense has never been a problem (He created that Powe goal vs TO with a great pinch) but
in the defensive zone he is just a ****ing pushover. People smaller than him easily outmuscle him.
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.
