Of course Carle is complete garbage to a lot of people.

Anyway...it's one year for Timonen..Carle's contract was obviously more years but he still fit a need regardless. Would have liked 4.5 to 5M for Timonen but what can you do...6m is a lot but guy has been a good soldier...prolly why he's getting this one year bonus of sorts.
Remove Carle from the equation. Look at how last summer went in terms of finding defensemen. The best defenseman on the UFA market this summer is/was Timonen himself. They couldn't afford to not pay him whatever he wanted.
