I've seen the two players play a ton and can say just from watching, that Suter is a MUCH better hockey player then Carle. I don't even think Carle is a horrible defender, not a 5 millionish one though.
I tend to be somebody that likes to use advanced statistics to SUPPORT what I see with my own eyes.

I think it's silly to completely ignore advanced stats and call them meaningless. I also think it's silly to ignore what your eyes tell you.

That said, advanced statistics are measuring a very real, tangible outcome. Often times, they are things the average fan simply doesn't notice.
