Tbf I think this years Kimmo (and this years Kimmo is not really Kimmo) and Carle have a lot of similarities, but different reasons for them. (1 speed, 1 wrists/IQ!)
Both are decent players and are fine for 58 minutes a game or 95/100 plays... where other players not as solid for as many minutes... but only look stupid on 1 out of 100 plays.
Carle always had decent games averaged out... but those 1-2 massive blown plays he had a lot games negated the others that would make him a pretty good d man, and massively frustrated fans and gave him a bad rep. (As you say... he kept doing the same things constantly!)
Kimmo is the same this year. Does most of the small things right then ****s up massively.
