Saying "on a team in playoff position" isn't saying much considering how weak the East is and that that statement disregards team strengths and weaknesses as well as seeding. It's also a huge stretch to call Carle their number one.

Tampa is where they are because of a great start, having Steven Stamkos on their team (prior to the tibia injury), and Ben Bishop. Lately they've been playing as bad or worse then us. Last 10:

Philly: 6-4-0
Tampa: 4-5-1

Things seem to be evening out for them and they are most definitely not a team that's deep in D or even can be listed as a strength at D.
