You want Bodie? He's a pretty good power forward and is willing to drop the gloves.

This.

Mclaren is ZERO use to us, literally zero. Caron could play a serviceable 3rd/4th line checker who doesn't hurt the team should there be injuries.

Not saying he's worth a 4th or more, but why trade him for nothing??

If its something that you think can help/a good pick then I'd consider it. Otherwise no.

I certainly think it would help. He'd fit in well on a line with Paille and Campbell as a power forward and is decent at killing penalties. Most nights he's playing over ten minutes. I'd maybe even consider throwing in a late pick for this upcoming draft.

Unless the team Bus crashes and Caron is one of the few that doesn't get hurt, he won't be playing. They will call Spooner, Fraser or Florek up to play

Boston would probably accept that offer without hesitation. Don't see the point of it from an Edmonton perspective though.

Caron for Leblanc seems to be fair. I love the idea of Prust/Bournival/Caron lines

If we're going auction style, Toronto offers Bodie and a 2014 7th.

I offer McLaren for Caron and a 7th. That's my best offer. Maybe we'll take the 7th out if ABSOLUTELY necessary.

So you wanna try Caron + 7th for McLaren one more time? I think people might have changed their minds since the first page.

caron isn't going to end up being part of the bruins long term plans... but like shawn bates or kevyn adams or wes walz before him, that doesn't mean he cant work out a decent 3rd/4th line career on some lesser team.

guys like this are never worth a lot in trade value... a throw in to a deal... traded for another busted prospect... waived...

its actually a good problem to have for boston... the guy is good enough to be an nhl regular but not good enough to be a good nhl regular. boston simply has 12 better players to dress most nights

Good, that means I got a better batch of people to work with here McLaren is a good 13th forward on your team who can be worth something in the playoffs. Your 7th is worth practically nothing, and Caron would probably be hard pressed to even crack the lineup with us until we move a couple of players. However, we took a chance on Hartikainen who fell off a depth chart, why not do it with Caron. He could still has some decent bottom 6 upside.

First of all, Spooner will only play if one of the centers is injured. He doesn't play wing. If Paille/any wingers in the bottom six are injured Caron is ahead of Spooner (not talent wise, position and depth wise).

Caron would absolutely play over Florek..Fraser is a toss up, Caron is quite a bit better defensively so it would largely depend on Julien. In the playoffs I'd wager julien would put Caron in over Fraser.

Explain to me how Mclaren would help the Bruins more than Caron. He doesn't.

People mistake me thinking Caron is worth a lot..I'm merely saying that the deal you've offered many times before doesn't help us. Why should we give him to a division rival for literally nothing when he's still a serviceable player? Caron is a better 13th forward than Mclaren.

If Chiarelli wanted to give Caron up for nothing he would have already, he'd easily be an every day bottom six player on a lesser team.

I agree with you, even though I'd love to get Caron for the low price of McLaren. Any interest in Bodie or should I go dangle him somewhere else?

Explain this to me. We are a lesser team, but he'd be a 13th forward for us. He's a better fit for us because we may need him eventually, more likely so than we'd need McLaren. Everyone wanted to get rid of him to anyone who would take him.

I thought we are keeping Bodie? McLaren doesn't have a use for us because of the emergence of Bodie, otherwise I thought we would keep him. He's still worth something as a 13th forward or 4th line grinder.

I'd have zero interest in moving Leblanc for Caron. I wouldn't mind Caron on the Habs but I don't think we need to move Leblanc to get him.

Major overpayment. Hartikainen is better than Caron, yet he didn't make your lineup. Caron wouldn't have a chance.

On bottom tier teams, leafs are in the middle somewhere IMO.

He's an NHL player, one that is more valuable to the Bruins than Mclaren ever would be. Julien knows and trusts Caron defensively. Neither are worth much of anything, why would we make that trade?
