He is bad relative to to our other Top 4, but not that bad in the grand scheme of things. He isn't strong on the body and he often finds himself in bad positions, but there are many time were he has bailed out our goalies. Either way his worth isn't his defensive ability, it is his puck moving ability.
I think we have enough of those, thus Carle is expendable. Although Coburn doesn't rack up points, he moves the puck out very often, and gains the zone with his long strides. We don't need to go over Kimmo and Pronger.
Mez seems to be the inverse of Coburn on the offensive aspect. Not good at bringing the puck in, but loves to shoot.
We go down even further in our depth chart with Bartulis, Syvret and Gust seem to be capable puck movers and willing to shoot. Nothing to really brag about, but if we are going to be redundant on our blueline, we might as well be cost efficient.
