Yes!

I know there was some talking on this board against Carle but I'm far from confident with what we have on D right now.

Carle is NOT the dman we should overpay for. I'm so afraid of the $$ on this contract.

I have faith that the contract won't be too bad. I'm sure we'll "overpay" since it's crazyseason, but whatever it is it shouldn't hamstring us for 13 years.

Same. I actually like Carle a lot. His games when we had him last were under Melrose.. so it's hard to hold anything against him there.

He fits a need. Hopefully he's not overly overpaid here...but I trust Yzerman to make it work out.

Obviously he's going to be overpaid. I'm sure Yzerman checked out the trading block and saw that no deals would be made that way. I think Carle gets 4.5 million but we'll see... we are dealing with SFY here.

If Carle is overpaid real bad, I hope it would at least be on a short term-ish deal.

Eh, thought he was bad in his own zone, thought the same when I saw him in philly. Not sure what need that would fill if that is still the case.

And i still think we give yzerman way to much of a pass. Im not sure how well Detroit has done since he started there. Id have to really go back and look at that though and I'm in no shape for that now.

5.5 is too much for Carle. Period. 6 years? Don't like this contract.

OMG guys is the world ending?!?

As was previously stated on twitter, you overpay for free agents. We overpaid for Carle. Yzerman must have thought he was the most realistic option this offseason and pulled the trigger. Carle isn't ideal, he isn't what any of us wanted, but it was the best we could do.

The defense is still iffy, and to make a real run at it this season we will need Hedman to keep stepping up, Brewer from 2 years ago, and Mace bleeping Windu in net. Let's not lynch anybody until the All Star Break, OK guys?
