Funny thing is I didn't even say for the entire season. I said START with him there, then see how the next handful of games goes.
I wouldn't judge Bourque based on 33 NHL games averaging 9 mins of TOI spot duty with a talented Pens and Caps squad. Caron can't even score at the AHL level. Neither is gonna light the NHL on fire but Bourque deserves a legitimate look and Caron needs to earn one.
