You really need to change your handle to "Carliephan"....
List of defenseman on the Flyers who are superior to Carle in their own zone:

Pronger
Timonen
Mez
Coburn
OD

Hm. Pretty much all of them.

As for +/- being a reliable indicator of defensive prowess, well, it isn't. Lidstrom is a -2. If +/- was any indicator of defensive ability you would be forced to assume that Carle is much better than Lidstrom...yet Carle is nowhere close to him when it comes to defensive ability.
