Carle may turn over the puck alot, but atleast he has some offensive ability.
Coburn is just another defensive defenseman and an average one at best with a big cap hit.

Not in favor of keeping Coburn, I would trade him to open up cap space for a real PMD.
We have other defensive defensemen in AHL or can pick up a FA for less.
Statistically, the team scored less when Carle was on the ice. A shocking amount less. They actually scored more with Coburn on the ice. The opposing team also scored more with Carle on than Coburn, too. Letting Carle go was the right move, and he followed it up with a horrible year in TB.

His horrific shot makes him very easy to defend because he's not a scoring threat from the blue line. Good riddance.

Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
