Beat me too it lol.

But seriously, Carle is a defenseman. Offensive stats don't tell the story at all. The pain is that his defensive stats will look impressive, but you actually have to watch the player to understand why he fails.

Carle is the typical can't put it all together defenseman. Sometimes he will make three goal-saving defensive plays, then follow it up by a giveaway in OT infront of net. It's just the way he is. He's so inconsistent even period to period. Oh and for an offensive defenseman, didn't he have 1 goal this year.

I'm in now way a Carle hater, the guy has pretty elite passing at times. It's just the fact that he's meant to stop the puck going in the other end, and his skating isn't strong enough to justify his brain farts in the defensive game. I'll take Coburn at 4 over Carle at 3.5 every day of the week and twice on sunday.
