Let's face it, in Pronger's absence, he's carrying a huge burden of ice time, while breaking in a raw rookie prospect Bourdon very successfully.

If you go by ice time, he's been 3-4 minutes more than Timonen or anyone else over the last several games.

Actually, as of tonight he just passed Pronger in TOI/G on the season:

But, yeah, he sucks, we should get rid of him.
In calling everyone else ignorant, you made an ignorant comment yourself...

Analyzation of the performance of players doesn't rely strictly on numbers. Everyone knows Matt Carle can rack up assists, and plays a lot of minutes.

Unfortunately for him, my criticism isn't about whats written on paper.

Have you actually watched a game, or are you just looking at the subsequent numbers? If you had, id imagine it would be nearly
Impossible for Carles consistently bad passes out of his own zone, his amazing eye for the right place to put the puck for a turnover, or his uncanny ability to be beaten on the outside, to go unnoticed.

Carle is not a terrible defenseman by any means. But the criticizing of him is valid, and quite obvious.

He has played better in recent games, but he's probably the most
Inconsistent flyers defensemanin recent years.
