Carle is a huge plus for Flyers

http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/...or_Flyers.html

Seravelli article from Daily News talks about Corsi stats from Behindthenet.ca :

"Among defensemen who played at least 60 games this season, Carle is 33rd in the NHL in Corsi's rankings. And if you adjust that for the fact that he has a tendency to start his shift in the defensive zone, he moves up to 22nd.

No other Flyer is close.

Put simply, Carle starts in his own zone more often, limits his opponents' chances when on the ice, and starts to create offensive opportunities with strong breakouts and outlet passes."
