I still don't think he's worth anywhere near 5 million a year.
This is the biggest thing. While I think he's a pretty good defenseman in the right situation, he won't be worth what he get's as a UFA.

After Grossmann signs, I would consider Carle at less than 4 mill and 3 years.
Worst case scenario is Grossmann walks and Matty Franchise gets over 4 mill.

I agree here, and that's why I feel the need to defend him.

With the current state of the team, I do NOT want Carle for what he will probably get on the open market. However, that does not mean the guy sucks! There's a big difference between ripping the guy to shreds and saying how terrible he is (which he isn't...at all), and simply stating you don't want him because he's going to make a pretty penny.

People suffer massively from a herd mentality and recency bias when it comes to Carle (and lots of things really).

I think he's going to approach 5. People don't want to admit it, but defenseman that put up 40 pts while playing 22 minutes a night aren't exactly common.

Sadly he is, just sure as hell better not be from the Flyers.

Let Carle walk. I doubt anyone will trade for him before the draft.
Re-sign Grossmann. Maybe re-sign Kubina too, I would pay around 2M. Not more.
Go after Suter. Yes. We need him.
Wait to see if Pronger comes back. We can always trade d-men during the season if Chris is healthy enough.

Grossmann Coburn
Timonen Suter
Meszaros Kubina

Pronger???????

Kubina has been nice, but no, I don't want him back. We need to give a younger player that 6th spot with Lilja as the 7th. Either Gus or Bourdon

I appreciate Matt Carle committing the egregious turnover that led to Bryz suffering a chip fracture in his foot as he awkwardly tried to make the save.

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere it happened during warm-ups. I'll try and find a link.

EDIT: Found it. Says "may have."

Because of Bryzgalov’s potential injury _ he may have gotten hit on the leg during warm-ups Monday _ the Flyers figure to err on the side of caution and use Bob on Thursday in Toronto.

Then Carle is off the hook, no way his marshmallow shot could fracture a dinner plate.

What is wrong with our medical staff?

I hear you but at 35 Kubina can still be useful. I'd give him a reasonable deal over Gus or Bourdon.

Nothing. They did an X-ray last night and couldn't see anything. They did an MRI today and they saw the chip fracture. Pretty standard stuff.

Just incase anyone actually cares, BSH has now put Carle on the level of Boyle/Chara/Letang/Karlsson/Keith.

Only a matter of time before they start chanting his name for the Norris.

In coming years, people will discuss how many Carle trophies Lidstrom won.

It's just a matter of time before everyone starts debating over the big 3: Orr, Lidstrom, Carle
