That's not true. McDonagh and Girardi do all of the heavy lifting on the Rangers. Carle faced tougher competition, had tougher zone starts, and yet finished with a better Corsi than anyone on the Rangers besides McDonagh and Girardi. He would be a #3 on the Rangers. Carle isn't a #1 by any means, but he is a lot better than people realize.
