Really not impressed that they targeted Carle. Carle is a #4 dman who got more minutes in Philly out of necessity, they had massive injuries on their blueline. They were also a team that could pile up the goals and boost Carle's second assists numbers. But he is not physical and he's not good in his own zone. I can't understand why they would watch the LA series and conclude Carle is what they'd need. He's the opposite of what they'd need. And the idea that they were in it to the end suggests they were willing to make this guy the highest paid Blue for a bunch of years. Carle is Colaiacovo only if Colaiacovo were healthier and were a better passer in the offensive zone. Maybe a bit better skater through the neutral zone with the puck. Otherwise they're the same guy, and we already know that doesn't work.
