Scouts have compared Caron to J.P. Dumont and Patrick Marleau. When asked to which former Bruin Chiarelli would compare the team’s newest addition, the GM stated that Caron had a lot of the same characteristics, like being “heavy on the puck,” as a young Glen Murray.

Sounds like 3rd line winger was exactly what Chia had in mind...

You or I could have picked Seguin and Hamilton. As far as Caron, why is it so hard to admit he hasn't developed near as much as expected? I would think people get more annoyed at Bruins fans that just fluff the team any chance they can get, even when there is overwhelming evidence things aren't going according to plan.
I love when people go out of their way to give Chia credit for those picks. I mean come on. Those choices were essentially made for them. As for the remainder of his drafting, that still is pretty questionable, IMO. You take away the can't miss types and it's spotty at best.
