Carle wasn't scoring from the point all that much that year. Primarily, he was getting the backdoor pass from Thornton who planted himself behind the net. I think Carle will pot 5-10 goals next year, for who is anybodys guess. As much as he is vilified here, Philly traded for him and still seems to like him.
