The Pouliot thing isn't necessarily fair, seeing as though it was mentioned that he didn't outplay other options at training camp, but was instead handed a spot with the idea that he'd improve.

Caron could have stolen that thought if he had made himself the far and away better option. He didn't. But he DID outplay Pouliot and went to Providence anyway.
