Guess what we miss right now on the backend?
Just curious if you saw the games last year and not highlights. I never understood where this "carle is a great puck mover" comes from.

He was terrible under pressure. I mean sure, he could outlet a pass when starting the rush. But so can other defenseman on the team. He's another Villie leino. Going to be hillarious.
