I think Chia and co thought Caron would be ready to take the reigns, and potentially could have brought more to the table than Pouliot.
I think the general consensus (as well as managements opinion at the time) thought Caron would continue with his progress. He's either hurt or regressed and our 13th forward (Chris Bourque), is now playing basically full time in our top 9.
That said, he wouldn't have his current numbers here, but probably more than Bourque. It was a risk moving him, that didn't work out, but could have.
