That will be a good fit for him, Yzerman knows what he's doing.

Cross another defenseman off the list of available free agents.

Carle actually played a few games with the Lightning during the 2008-09 season. He was acquired by Tampa in the Dan Boyle trade. The trade involved Carle, Ty Wishart, Tampa's first round pick in the 2009 Entry Draft (used by Anaheim to select Kyle Palmieri), and a fourth round pick in 2010 for Dan Boyle and Brad Lukowich.

Twelve games later, they sent him and their third round pick in 2009 to Philadelphia for Steve Downie, Steve Eminger, and a fourth round pick in 2009.

Now that he's back in a Tampa Bay uniform, much improved from his last stint with the Lightning, I'm sure Lightning fans are quite pleased. In essence, they've lost Downie and reacquired Carle.

Carle is painful to watch defensively.

Dat Ron WIlson San Jose system.

I'm liking Tampa's new defence. ::D

Darren Dreger@DarrenDreger

Matt Carle is asking a contract eerily similar to the one Suter was given today by the Minnesota Wild.

Garrison signing looks like the d-man steal of the summer, so far. Some might disagree, but I'd rather have Garrison than Carle.

Garrison is much better defensivly, while handling much tougher minutes with worse teammates. Same ages, but Garrison has much fewer NHL miles on him. Looks like Garrison will cost much less with shorter term. If this report is true, I will tip my hat to Gillis.

Yzerman deals a fatal blow to the Red Wings cup chances.

Ken Holland should have retired with Lidstrom, because he was their team.
