I don't know why anyone granted the premise that the stats show Carle being best on the team. They don't.
And people are not slighting Carle. Until recently, he was playing poorly. Recently, he's been playing much better. Ear to the ground, he's played better, very well-- that is the running opinion from the majority of people with their heads on straight.
Kimmo and historically, Pronger, have much better stats in important areas (quality of competition, corsi, etc). Just relative quality of competition it goes Pronger, Kimmo, MAB (shocking really), and then Carle, Coburn, Gust, and Mez (who is having a bad start but should improve).
That being said. He's played well (recently!)
