I'd rather play Gustafsson than Kaberle on the point next year. Kabby is going through the motions to collect his money. Some sucker will give him a contract next year, I hope it isn't us.
not sure if serious. Really? Carle is soft as hell. is horrid in his own end. How many times did we see when he has a chance to rub out an opposing puck carrier and all he did was just try the poke check instead of playing the body as we saw another prime scoring chance go right by Carle.
Plus/minus is the most overrated stat in hockey. Danny Briere was a +20 I guess he was robbed of Selke trophy nomination too right? Mike Green was a +39 last season and we all know how great defensively he is.
I would take Kaberle any day of the week over Carle and I am not exactly Kaberle's biggest fan.
