Yeah, this is what I was thinking. If you guys think that Carle is ok offensively but bad defensively I can't wait until you'd actually see this guy against NHL competition. He's had to "improve defensively" just to NOT be a liability at the junior level, he's gonna look COMPLETELY one dimensionable in the NHL. His defense will be far far worse than even Mike Greens defense and his offense probably won't be anywhere nearly as good. Hell, Sammy Kapanen would have looked like an allstar shut-down guy as a winger playing defense compared to Ellis on defense. Sorry but he's no "replacement" for Kimmo. I'd probably be ok with him along side a defensive stud like Suter but certainly not with any of our current crop once Timonen and Pronger are done.
