Yep, which doesn't really get the job done. The problem people have with Carle is where and when he turns it over, more than sheer numbers. Not all turnovers are created equal, and more often than not when a defenseman tries to clear it through the slot only to set up a great scoring chance for the opponent...it's Carle; Timonen, Coburn and Mez aren't known for that sort of thing, but Carle has earned a reputation for it. Most d-men will go for safe plays. Seems like Carle does the dangerous play often. Sometimes it works, sometimes it leads to horrible things.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
