People often say we should have kept Carkner because of his toughness element he added.

Lets be clear...

Carkner was tough because he was a great fighter but a great solid hitter he was not. I can probably count on one hand how many good solid open ice hits Carks had in his entire time here. He was too slow to get in a position to throw big hits. He was good at angling guys and rubbing them out against the boards but he wasn't someone you'd fear of catching you with your head down open ice.
