He looked like an NHLer to me. Not necessarily top-6, but not unnecessarily either.

Caron's lack of production in Providence does raise concern in me about HIM. And I don't think it's offside to discuss it. He's a couple of years older and quite a bit smarter than many of the kids on that club. I don't expect incredible numbers, but I do believe that he should be better than his current stats indicate.
He likely should have better numbers but I wouldn't use his time with Providence this year as a measuring stick. If the lockout ends let's see how he performs with the big club[provided he makes it].Inconsistency is quite common with young players but I am not sure if the B's will give Caron too many more chances if he can't play with more consistency.I am not sure if Caron can play regularly on the top 3 lines and be effective.
