I see Caron/Jared Knight as having the same type of ceiling. Not the same player, but the same ceiling. Definite third line potential...good defensively, hard worker, 40-60 point potential. I also see both of them with possible top six potential, but unlikely.

I see Caron as our 3rd line left wing of the future, but no chance for him to move up into the top six (Lucic, Marchand). With this trade, Edmonton gets a strong LW and a good draft pick...value seems fair.

Where do I sign?
IF Hemsky could stay healthy, yes ofcourse you do this deal. But how would you feel when Hemsky is in Boston & he succumbs to his annual injury and misses half the season or more, & Boston has a $5m cap hit on IR?

If Chiarelli chooses this route (shopping Caron + pick) for 3rd line vet who can occasionally slot into top-6, I'd rather him go after Morrow than Hemsky.
