He's very injury prone.
He's never played a full season...and with St. Louis, he has missed about 15-20 games each and every season due to injuries.
Every few games, he'll leave the game with an apparent injury and it will look like he is really, really hurt. He'll have this grimace on his face like he is in severe pain and leave you wondering, uh oh... but he usually comes back or only misses a game, or two, or three. But yeah, that kind of thing happens all of the time with him.
He will have defensive lapses more than you would like. He'll also make you pull your hair out in the offensive zone at the blue line.
He should also score more than he does given he has a decent shot.
I like Carlo, I'd like to have him back as a depth guy. But no huge loss as the Blues have some guys ready to make the step into the NHL. Any higher than #5 or #6 on the depth chart for Carlo, and you're asking too much of him.
Seeing as how you guys have lost a chunk of your defense, he'd be a decent sign for Detroit. But don't expect a whole lot from him.
