That being said, this isn't the place to discuss Matt Carle, but my point was that there's no way the Lightning would have given Carle $5.5mil/year just to see them make that signing redundant before Carle ever plays a game with them by bringing in Boyle, while at the same time opening a hole on the wing.
Then why bring it up by saying:

Awful deal for the Lightning when looking at asset management.
Anyways, your main point is right though, Matt Carle is Tampa's #1 PMD now. Boyle is still clearly the better Dman though (obviously). Even if we didn't have Carle I wouldn't want to trade MSL for Boyle (and I'm a huge Boyle fan).
