I think Gus or Bourdon could be groomed to be part of our d at one point. Classic overreaction?
Did you not watch the playoffs? And if you did, were you one of the few not screaming at Carle a good portion of the time? Guy is an offensive d-man with the weakest, least accurate shot ever. I never feel comfortable when he is in our own zone.
The more time he spends on the ice = the more likely something bad is going to happen. he has been overrated for awhile now and one thing is clear, without a Pronger-like guy for him to play with, his flaws far outpace his upside.
