No player is indispensable unless your Crosby or Ovechkin. And I never said or hinted in any way that Richards and Carter were moved because Carle was indispensable. What I did say repeatedly and brung up were the reasons why a defenseman shouldn't be moved to gain Cap space. I was right all along.
And that's further reinforced by the statements that Lukko and Holmgren of made that they wanted to keep their defense intact this off season.
That situation was badly missed by many when the reasons not to trade Carle were obvious.
You mean the same guys who made statements that Carter and Richards weren't getting traded?
