What games have you been watching? Our entire team relies so much on Carey's puck handling abilities that our Dmen don't even bother to skate back anymore when the other team dumps the puck in.

Obviously he'll make some mistakes when he handles the puck 20 times a game, but I can probably count on one hand all the times it's directly resulted in a goal against this year. Plus he probably has a better breakout pass percentage than 80% of our Ds.
