I don't know if it's misremembering so much as it's feeling that's how defense should be played. I don't particularly care for one more than the other, and I think it makes sense to trade one of them, but watching Carle try to play D sometimes is damn near impossible. When he doesn't make a play that makes him look like he's wearing skates for the first time, it's not so bad.

The crap that both players get is deserved. Some people who have hardons for certian players cant accept certian players short comings.
HF has the worst memory. Coburn was the whipping boy for the last two years. He doesn't get much flak this season because he's been very good (as has Carle).

If you want to talk about players immune from criticism, look no further than Timonen. I love him and he's been nothing short of fantastic for the Flyers, but he has dry spells just like everyone else. Whenever he makes mistakes, everyone looks to pass off the blame.

That's because Timonen's like a war buddy. It's hard to hate on the guy who taken shot after shot after shot for you, particularly when he can still contribute elsewhere, even if irregularly.

Yes, everybody wants a flashy player like Coburn who can hit on occasion, but that is overrated among fans.

Who is going to replace him? Boynton, Walker, Bartulis or Syvret? Those guys couldn't handle his jock. You do know OD is gone after this year right? Who is going to replace him? If they trade Carle the D-corps overall will be much weaker than this year, which is BAD since we have the most asinine goaltenders around who can't stop ****.

Plus, you think Coburn would last 5 minutes on Pronger's line? Pronger would *****-slap that idiot so fast it would make his beak spin.
Bwahahahahahahahaha. Matt Carle is a fine hockey player, but that statement is just pure lunacy.

People can still love him (as they should). I just believe in attributing blame properly.

Just read the whole thread. I'm not saying Matt Carle is a "Phenom" or anything but are people really critizing him. I feel that a lot of Flyers fans don't realize what value him and Coburn mean to this team. As someone said, who are the Flyers going to replace him with? Who's honestly in free agency at his $$$ value. At his price, everything is a downgrade.

You wanna trade him for picks? Fine but insert Boynton/Syvret/Gufstasson and the defense is pretty downgraded, here we go again with a sub-par 3rd pairing.

Have all of you been satisfied with Pronger this season? He sure as hell looks slower.

You mean... like how most teams 3rd pairing is? 99% of the teams dont have a 1-6 who could play in the top 4. A third pairing is supposed to play 10-15 minutes a night, not everyone playing evenly.

I think he means going back again to how our third line D's were last season.

Yeah, well, that's silly too... last year we had a mid-season UFA, rookie, and oft-injured guy that never developed as our third pairing. You can do significantly better than that without breaking the bank.

You've hit the nail on the head.

Too many people look at Coburn and Carle and only see what they aren't. Not enough people look at what they are. People look at Coburn and think, "not consistently physical, handles the puck like a hand grenade in his own zone at times" instead of "gigantic, fast, surprisingly agile defensive dman who won't get beat one on one and will occasionally play very physical and look dominant." People look at Carle and think "not physical, prone to passing to teammates who can't possibly be ready for the pass in his own zone" instead of "positionally sound, amazingly quick thinker who is able to make passes that 95% of the league can't even dream of making in their wildest dreams."

I would have KILLED to have had a Matt Carle on the blue line during the LOD days. Outside of Niinimaa's rookie year in 97, we never had a guy even remotely like that backing up Rico.

But no, no, people, please continue ripping him because he has a 1% shooting percentage and one measly goal, nevermind the 30 assists, many coming on absolutely ridiculous game-changing passes.

It is widely known that I dislike Carle. I didn't realize this thread had a rule in it that said that only good things are allowed to be said about Carle.

Carle makes some great offensive plays, I just don't think it is worth his defensive suck
