I personally wanted someone with a little more offensive punch like Spooner or Knight to step up, but the limited camp really hurt their chances of earning that spot. Consider it a symptom of the lockout rather than Bourque being a viable player.
IMO this is what is important here- the failure of Caron to cement his spot on the team. I understand he is now injured but his play during the lockout was apparently not all that impressive.
