I guess Randy Carlyle doesn't know what a competent defender looks like, since he leaned on Fowler for 22+ minutes a game.
Good point, Carlyle's confidence should be about +300 CORSI points given his past as a great defenseman and coaching great defensemen.
You get the impression that the author of that article was faced with a bunch of numbers based on his stats method, and then created a narrative to fit the figures. Having watched Cam all year I don't feel that he was rushed or was unready, but you can certainly see how looking at some of his stats might suggest otherwise.
I have a feeling the author does not watch a ton of ducks hockey - I watched nearly every game and RARELY was I cursing at Fowler for bad play, It was most always someone else (Brookbank, Lilja, Sutton, Mara, back checkers...)
