These are things we've noticed are par for the course after watching Carle over the course of many games. These are things which stats don't show, so good luck disproving it.
As has been stated, blogs and analysts are only opinions. They aren't gospel.
The Flyers used Carle as they did because he was all they had and there was no other alternative, especially with Mez and Timonen injured. Not because he is a phenom.
what about my claim?
the reality of our teams situation is without carle, we're SOL on defense.
shall I pull up the "best" of gustafsson? of MAB? (let alone against crosby)
Carle's not a perfect player, he's got his flaws. But now you're just acting silly.
If we let Carle go, we will have lost:
(half our defense)
in 2 years, with nothing to show for it!
