But you're right. That presence seems right now what we need on the third line. If somehow Bourque and Pevs (or whatever combination you choose) could gel a bit, they might be able to use their craftiness to forge a decent tertiary attack. But I think it's more likely that a body to clear space has a better chance of being effective.
I'd just rather try Tardif at this point, than Caron. It's more... To me it's more of a matter of principle. Tardif is doing his best to earn a shot - he should get it. At least before Caron does.
The ideal solution in all likelyhood however, is outside of the organization.
Isn't Tardif a RW? Can he play his off-wing at all? Where was Caron playing in Providence, who were his linemates?
