I wouldn't pay him $6M, but I wouldn't have any problem with going to $5M.
Besides eating a ton of minutes, what exactly does Carle do well?

He's an "offensive defenseman" that has a weak shot and pretty much cant hit in the blind side of a barn.

His positioning at times is beyond questionable. Without Pronger carrying him, his true talent shined through and boy oh boy, how talentless he is.
