I thought it was a given the Flyers couldn't sign Carle until 7/1 because of tagging space. I think he'll sign in Philly for under $5M. Met him a few times casually and he seems to have like playing on a team where he isn't being looked at to carry a d. In Phila he has Kimo as the #1 and Mez, Coburn, Grossman, and now Schenn that will all kind of just blend together. If he goes to COL or any team that pays him more then $5M he will have a lot more epected of him.

Plus, his girlfriend/wife (?) and Carle have gotten involved with several charities in the Phila area.

If he is looking for $5M or more the Flyers will not resing him not necessarily because he doesn't deserve it but because they can only spend so much on the their D.
