Again: if you want to thrive as a NHL shutdown C, you better be good in the FO circle.
That was one of many things Carbo was good at.

True, FOs is one of the reasons Plekanec will never win the Selke, but there is a point for stating they are somewhat overrated.

But Carbo is still not the guy I'd go to for advice on how to build a puck possession dominant team.
