Carle is better than Meszaros. I said it last season and was crucified. People underrated Carle's ability to transition the puck through the neutral zone, and defend 1 on 1. There was a reason Carle would get more ice time than Andrei, because Carle is a MUCH better even strength player.
You can point to his lack of a point shot all you want, but in the grand scheme of things, it's not a make-or-break skill for a defender to have. He may not be worth $5.5M, but to suggest that losing him does not make the team SIGNIFICANTLY worse is to misrepresent the team's previous recipe for success.
