I haven't seen him play much recently, but Carl would fit a secondary scoring role over here well. Not having seen him recently I'm not sure how his defensive game has progressed but, I know with Malmo it was pretty atrocious in the games I saw. Although that's a small sample size, and Malmo was on it's downswing by the time I started watching those games.
He's been pretty consistently good on the national team, almost always one of the best players, if not the best. Problem is that the team has been playing like absolute crap these last tourneys, and the coach is a disaster, so it's kind of hard to judge any of the players on the team, really.
As for his defensive game, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. He's pretty much as good defensively as he is offensively.
