Carle alone isn't the solution unless we had gotten Weber to pair him with though. His terrible shot made him one dimensional offensively, which made him easy to defend. The pass was his only realistic option, and all defenders did was make sure he only had the wing or his partner as pass options; and when his partner wasn't Pronger, it's not like they were a huge threat offensively. If we still have Carle we're probably still 0-3. He's a complementary guy, not a a go-to guy.

He actually produced points at a lower rate than Coburn, but got more total points because he had more ice time since Coburn was saved for the opponent's top 6. The team overall produced at a lower rate when Carle was on the ice leading a D pairing.
