I don't see how this is over-hype, they're actually using what the Flyers are on record for in regards to what tangible evidence they use to evaluate their players.
Over the course of 82 games, the Flyers' offense was demonstrably more effective whenever Carle wasn't on the ice. Goals were scored at a higher rate when he was on the bench. It's not luck when it occurs over the course of an entire season...that's a trend.

I've got a post spelling it out in the other Carle offseason thread. I'm going to bed but I'll dig it up tomorrow if I remember/feel like it.
