Carlo is simply a better defenseman than Hanifin.
I didn’t seem like he had his legs. That leads to problems everywhere. They
Crazy that all 3 guys went to the SCF or won the SC in the last 2 seasons. This should tell you how valuable a guy like Carlo is. No reason to move him.
This must be a jke....Off the cuff....right ?.
I think Carlo is significantly better at defending. Noah is a bit better at scoring goals. But his offence isn’t off the charts or anything. Carlo>Hanifin
Carlo's clearly not as good at allowing the opposition to score.
Interesting stat, wouldn’t have necessarily though he’d rank that high.
The team success you note could also be related to the system the team plays, the goaltending, etc. which will help a defensive defenseman’s numbers.
Not taking anything away from him, just saying the team data point and the individual player data point are likely somewhat impactful on each other.
Of course then there is also the issue of a lot of factors have to break the right way to get to the finals, health, hot team, hot goalie, having better teams lose in earlier rounds, a bit of luck.
I'm interested to see what Carlo's game looks like this coming season. I've always felt like he had more to offer offensively, but being that Krug was below average defensively, Carlo had to play conservatively as a last line of defense. This past season I was actually surprised to see that when you looked at Carlo's 5v5 point production, he had has many 5v5 points as Torey Krug. I was actually really shocked to see some of the names tied with Carlo or below Carlo last year in 5v5 points.
Same PTS as Carlo
Less PTS than Carlo
Obviously for Carlo he doesn't the PP opportunity to put up points like some of these others, but for a guy that I think many feel is offensively challenged, its interesting to see this list vs his peer at 5v5.
