He also played with Pateryn although that was the season he got hurt and missed the rest of the season.

I don't remember hearing that. But I was never impressed with Mitera at Michigan and thought it was a bad pick by the Ducks back then.

Carle passed waivers last year but that was after missing most of the previous season, so it wasn't a surprise that he passed. That said i could see him passing again, just that imo isn't not as much as a given as it was last year as he finally stayed healthy and had a solid season with 11 goals.

Personally I don't think Mitera will break into an regular NHL'er, but who knows, maybe a change of scenery will do good for him.
Carl's game is about offense. He's good on the PP, can dish the puck but also likes to pinch in. He's not great in his own end, not overly physical and not the fastest player out there but overall he's a solid AHL defensemen especially on the PP.

Yes he wore the C his Senior year.

Habs do seem to like Michigan, Cammer, Komisarek, Pateryn, Bennett, Palushaj, Pac, Mitera.

It's not pretty, only White remains from the draft.

Fischer's comp pick, Maxwell, Carle and Valentenko all traded. At least we had a good '05 and '07 draft.
