I agree here, and that's why I feel the need to defend him.
With the current state of the team, I do NOT want Carle for what he will probably get on the open market. However, that does not mean the guy sucks! There's a big difference between ripping the guy to shreds and saying how terrible he is (which he isn't...at all), and simply stating you don't want him because he's going to make a pretty penny.
People suffer massively from a herd mentality and recency bias when it comes to Carle (and lots of things really).
