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.
Yea, I understand that. I just have to wonder how much does Confirmation Bias come into play. I strongly believe at this point that people notice EVERYTHING Carle does because he is so hated. I'd wonder how much more Carle does that than the other guys (relative to how much they handle the puck).
I kind of want him to come back now so I can perform my own turnover logs throughout the course of the season haha.
