I was speaking in terms of offense. If anything, Doan is inferior in that aspect.

As for Carle, Kronwall is the only defenseman on the team in his league. He's very good offensively, plays a physical game, and plays well defensively. After Suter still wasn't signed on the morning of July 3rd, Holland should have signed Matt Carle and then looked into trading Quincey or even White for a physical, defensive guy like Volchenkov. Maybe even looked into what it would take for one of Staal/McDonagh/Girardi trade from New York. Actually, that's still a good idea. If (after signing Carle) you could get away dealing Ian White, Gustav Nyquist, and a first rounder for that would be great.

Alternatively, look into the rights for Del Zotto. He's not a shut-down type, but he'd be a great pickup - especially if it were Quincey and not White who were dealt.
