I believe a Flyers fan described Matt Carle as a guy that advanced stats guys love and everybody else hates. You can probably say the same for Paul Martin. The advanced numbers usually say he's good, but he doesn't pass the eye test to a lot of the fans. He's soft, can move/lug the puck but overall is pretty bad offensively and made too many mental mistakes last season. I do think he gets too much hate but that's because he's the type of player you only notice when he screws up. You don't notice him when he's on his game because he doesn't do anything flashy in terms of scoring or big hits.
