He's a top 10 defenseman and can play effectively in any situation. Suter is a younger, bigger, and possibly better version of Kimmo Timonen. James Wisniewski got a 6 year deal for 5.5 (making 7 this year) for 51 points. Suter will be around there offensively and is far better defensively than Wisniewski.
I would be ok with Carle being re-signed if it was less than 5 years for less than 4 million, I just think he would have to really like playing for the Flyers to take that kind of a pay reduction.
