Matt Carle

Lots of fans want this guy, where will he land?
Edmonton?
St. Louis?
Back in Philly?

He's the 2nd best option after Suter.

Garrison is better and Carle will end up in Denver.

Garrison is going to regress severely when he isnt playing beside one of the leagues best pmd in Campbell anymore. Anyone who hands him big money(and someone will) will regret it badly.

He might regress offensively, but his defense (which is great) doesn't depend on Campbell.

Just curious as to why so many avs fans think carle ends up there. Is it just because he played his college hockey there or are there actual rumors?

He could be playing next to Pietrangelo or Shattenkirk though.

There have been some rumors that he wants to come back to Denver and he's also good friends with Stastny IIRC

Actual rumors, I'm trying to find it on the twitter and on our boards, but I can't. It was said that he would supposedly like to go back to Colorado.

I think a lot of is coming from people like Eklund. No credible reporter/insider has mentioned the Avs when talking about Carle.

But Andy Strickland did post this today:

I'm told Carle is interested in returning to Colorado where he attended college. He won the Hobey Baker at the University of Denver before signing with the San Jose Sharks.

He's not the best guy out there when it comes to inside information but he's not bad either.

I doubt he's going back to philly if he hasnt signed by now. No way they match the crazy offers he'll get.

Colorado appears to be a likely destination right now. Maybe edmonton.

It just depends on who Strickland's source is. He takes evreything that is said to him as gold. He is only as credible as his source, so we have no idea. It makes sense that Colorado would be high on his list though.

Thanks for clearing that up guys. Sounds like Colorado could be a likely destination. Carle is a good player I would just be scared of the price tag he'll come with

Wouldn't mind Carle on the Avs, anything 5million and below would be good.

He couldn't sign with the Flyers until 7/1 due to tagging restrictions.

For some reason it seems like Strickland is pretty accurate when it comes to the Avs. Don't know why that is.

Oh he's going to be overpaid for sure. Unfortunately, there aren't many options out there. I think everyone other than Suter/Parise will get overpaid because free agency is always crazy.

I see Carle getting at least $5M/yr and I wouldn't be surprised if it's from the Avs.

You can forget anything under $5M for now.

I may be wrong on this (someone please tell me if I am), but I'm pretty sure tagging rules come off the table once the NHL and PA agree/announce the salary cap for the following season, no matter when it is. The Flyers, officially, for next season are only at $58.8M for a $77M off-season cap (or $70.2 temp cap). Unless the Flyers are giving Carle $12M AAV, there really isn't any reason why they can't announce a deal if it's done.

I'm thinking it could be between the Avs and Blues. I would think those would be 2 of his top 5, maybe top 3 teams.

It will be interesting to see which defenseman signs first.

Carle is mediocre, I will feel bad for the team if they invest top dollars into him. Unless, it's the Flyers or Devils or Islanders.....

I have no idea if he wants to play in Ottawa or not, but I expect us to throw some good money at him.

Yeah I feel kind of the same way...the fact is we desperately need a decent defenseman.

Karlsson Cowen
Phillips Gonchar
Borowiecki Wiercioch

That might be the worst blueline in the league lol
