If you can get past the contract, he's a decent second pairing defenseman. If you get Brewer out of there, bring in someone who plays tough and to their size, and is more mobile then I'm sure we'd notice Carle even less.

He seems to play well in stretches (first 10 games this season, then first 5-7 games under Coop) and in many of those games he logged 25-28 mins of ice time and it went completely unnoticed! Again, he'll never be worth his cap hit, but at least he has to speed to not constantly be beat to the outside and has a decent grasp of gap control.

The bigger concern has to be Brewer. He's just downright awful.
