Knight will be a good call-up option this coming season for Boston, unless he outplays Caron in training camp. I do think based on Caron's play last season, it's his spot to lose. Knight also provides top 6 insurance and depth for the Bruins in case Marchand out-prices himself here or gets traded, injured, etc etc sometime in the next couple of years ( this also depends on Knight's development obviously ).

At his worse, I think Knight will be a lot like Kelly, a gritty two-way forward who's on-ice play and hustle outweighs what his stats indicate his worth to be. I think he's got better skills and talent potential than Kelly at the same age and hopefully that potential gets honed and the results follow suit.
