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.
The alternative is inviting some guys to camp and letting their play determine who gets the spot. Not handing it over to Caron without him earning it (which he certainly isn't).

And this is coming from someone who really likes the kid. I loved his first stint in the NHL and I thought he showed some serious flashes last season too. Dig his shot, his size and his hockey sense... So it concerns me extra, when he doesn't even seem to be more than your average third-line AHL player.
