I think what they are trying to say is that Carle is not good defensively, as he is an offensive minded defenseman. He isn't good enough to really run the point on the PP, and he is not good enough to be a solid defender with a medium to good defender paired with him. Carle is made by his defensive partner, and is made better by playing with high level talent, not the other way around.

What I fear is that we are going to pay him over 4 Mill a year, which IMO he is not worth. (he is on the open market, but not to this team) I would take carle back at 3.1 Mill a year, but get a feeling he is going to command about 4.5-4.8 a year which is truly absurd.
