What other options do we have presently? Chris Bourque? The 26 year old who has made a career of dominating the AHL then doing nothing in the NHL? Sounds like a stud replacement for Caron huh? Spooner? The green rookie whos played ZERO games in the NHL? Knight? Sauve? WHO??

We should play Chris Bourque who has a grand total of FOUR points in 33 games? Caron is the best option we have at this point. How do you know he wont take off the minute he laces up the skates in Boston?

I'll take the my chances on the 22 year old ex-1st rounder over the 26 year old who hasnt had a shred of success in the NHL yet.
