I don't see how Carle's PP numbers and his small role on the PK in anyway diminishes his outstanding production in ES play.
Every defenseman who handles the puck a lot and sees a lot of icetime is going to have giveaways. Including Pronger.
There are areas in Carle's game with room for improvement. One is his play on the PP. And the other is finishing his offensive chances. He's still relatively young for an NHL defenseman and he is just entering his prime. He's only going to get better.
