Don't know much about Carle but the front office loves his upside. I guess it's always good to get a promising young defenseman. The Flyers have had a good track record with trading for young promising defenseman (Braydon Coburn, Ryan Perant, and Randy Jones).
Watched him with the pioneers for 4 years he played with statsney winning the championship in 04 and 05 carle has huge potential.
