The issue is, when you extrapolate everyone's performance over a full 60 minutes it becomes clear that Carle wasn't terribly effective compared to what others were doing with their ice time.
Edit: Or rather, as effective as you claim.
It's very clear that Carle produced offensively. In 5 on 5 play, only Coburn was on for more goals for. And Carle finished in the top 20 in points for NHL defenseman. How come it wasn't inevitable that Coburn racked up the same point totals? There wasn't much difference in ice time. Again, Carle got his points by accident. Just by being there! LOL
It's very clear that Carle was effective. Certainly not as effective as he was in 10/11. But definitely effective.
