    But he only has 3 points..... black hole. :sarcasm:

    I think it would be wise to get his name on a contract for 4+ years. I think points will start coming. He's around the puck a lot and plays big minutes with top players. Eats up so much space with that wing span and skating....

    I was wondering if tonights game was the most minutes he played tonight but then found he had played over 28 minutes against Ottawa. That is crazy

    good time to ask, what is this guy worth? he's been really impressive, but 3 points is still 3 points.
    i expect his agent will want a bridge deal for like 2.5M per year for 2 years, hoping he bumps his
    points to like 20-25 and then get 4-5M long-term.

    Those are bargain prices for what he brings and if he adds those points at 4.5 mill

    If I'm Cassidy, I'm sitting Carlo's ass on the bench the final 2-3 games of the season, just to make sure lightning doesn't strike again for the third time. A healthy Carlo could be the difference between a close series and one where we win comfortably; he's playing THAT good right now.

    Even if we go contract holdout and bridge deal i think nurse becomes the starting argument

    Those names get near 20, Carlo has trouble breaking 10.

    I'd be happy to sign him long term even with his 3 points. John Moore has 9 points (in 6 more games), which is 3x as many, but still only 6 more points in absolute terms. I don't think it is a big deal, especially where we have some offensive D now.

    I also think he will average out as a 15-25 point guy. I've seen some nice anticipation from him lately.

    at only 22. defensemen always take longer to fully develop.

    For reference, here's Chara's 1st 4 seasons in the NHL:

    25 games, 0-1-1
    59 games, 2-6-8
    65 games, 2-9-11
    82 games, 2-7-9

    all totaled, 6-23-29 in 231 games... or 0.12 ppg.

    and Chara was a -61 in those 4 seasons.

    Carlo is big and can skate and getting more and more confident.I forget only 3rd season sometimes now.If your a forward on other team you cannot look forward to facing him all nite with that size and mobility .

    He will only get stronger and meaner.

    Chara and Miller are proper role models.

    might not be the popular pick here but in light of all the injuries on the back end, the way Carlo stepped up, as of this day, he`d be my 7th player award winner

    The way I look at it Carlo is the hidden 1st rounder and The reach of 2015 draft.

    So Zboril, DeBrusk, Carlo in the 1st round and Senyshyn in the 2nd round is pretty good in my books.
