sporadic willingness to play tough in his own zone and sacrifice his body
by blocking shots.
Iím an offensive type; I like to pass the puck. I have a good first pass, and I like to see the play. I know how to find guys. I like to control the power play. Iím not dominant in the defensive zone, but Iím not a high-risk d-man. I can take care of myself defensively
Is it just me or does this guy sound like the perfect successor to Breeze-by
Brisebois was far from being awful. He has been a good d-man for us for more than a decade. People underrated him because the media were all over him for nothing. Sure, he wasn't a #1 defender and made mistake at-times, but he was an excellent #2-#3 d-man. He was used like a 1st d-man for years so people hated the fact that he didn't played like one. If Carle can play like Brisebois did his entire carreer, I'll be glad that we drafted him.
