He's looked better as the season has gone on, thought he wasn't looking himself early on and seemed to be playing more aggressive/chippy style of play but wasn't moving his feet as much as I've seen him in the past. Should be interesting to see what happens if/when he's traded.

But Marc has a valid point. I speak routinely with London fans who believe it is certainly fair to say he's been a tad underwhelming so far. Having said that, it's also worth noting that the entire London team has been a tad underwhelming based on expectations. They'll all be fine in time.
in the London games I've seen, I haven't been very impressed with London on the whole but haven't seen any games recently. I was very impressed with McCarron before the injury but after he seemed to be getting less ice time and wasn't anywhere near as physical (which I assume he was told to take it easy since he returned so quickly from the shoulder injury)

I've seen a little so far, liked what I've seen and have heard good things, saying that he's been a good veteran presence on the club. He seems to get a good amount of ice, plays in the top 6 and PP at least from what I've seen. I hope to see him more as the season goes on as he's having a solid start to the year.

Should be fun watching him in Hamilton next year.

I don't know how some of you aren't at least a bit concerned. His production would be concerning for a 3rd rounder, let alone a 1st.

I wonder if he's still hurting from that shoulder injury he came back really quickly from. That would be a pretty decent reason, but why is he playing if that's the case?
I'm not the least bit concerned since I saw how he looked at the lake placid camp, preseason and how he looked pre shoulder injury in London. I would give just give it time, it's a very long season and we are only weeks into it.

We need to wait in all cases.

As far as McCarron is concerned, I just hope he can start scoring to play with USA team in WJC.
Anyway he is a long term project: he will spend two years in OHL and probably another one in AHL.
He should get an invite to the winter camp (5-6 weeks away), but if he doesn't make it, I would think he'll be there in 2015.

since returning from the shoulder injury, in the games I've seen he hasn't gotten a lot of ice time.
