If Carle didn't play on the first pairing, I would have less problems with him. The big problem is, we treat him like the go-to guy and quite frankly, he can't have that role.

I like Mez and hope his shortcomings eventually are resolved. I often feel like as soon as I think he is improving he has a set back either injury or otherwise. What's funny is that he has looked more like an offensive defenseman than Carle yet Carle is given this treatment by some fans as though he is just that.
