Carle absolutely commands the salary that is talked about for him. He's worth 5M on the open market easy. Carle is a very capable player on the PP. I wouldn't label him a PP QB. But his puck movement and playmaking, make him a solid point man on the PP. And he's a solid defender. The statement that he is automatically replaceable makes zero sense. No such thing. Just as there is no such thing as a player being made expendable.
He just doesn't have that QB ability to even command that much money. Any team who gives him 5 mil will overpay because that is how the market is for defenseman. I highly doubt the flyers resign him to that hit. He is replaceable because it isn't like this guy is a top player on the team. He is a solid player but that is it. The Flyers could grab a better option like Yandle for instance. He is very replaceable.
