Should Ryan Spooner Get the Third Line Duty Over Chris Bourque?

Biggest issue I see with the 3rd is sustained pressure, which often comes with bodies working the boards, that's where I see Caron being a better fit.....may not be the popular fit here but I won't be one bit shocked if he's given the chance to nudge Bourque out when he gets healthy
While I admit I don't have the admiration for Caron that some have (I think he is really slow) I do think Caron is better on the boards and that is one thing this line is missing.
In the Devils game every time the Bruins were pinned in their own end this line was on the ice and couldn't get the puck out and if they did manage it, they would lose it in the neutral zone.
This team's bread and butter is playing hard for the puck along the boards. I don't see much of this from the 3rd line and when it comes to Caron he is actually good at this.
I am not convinced at the moment though that there is anyone in Providence ready to make the jump.
