In response to dezaruchi's comment:
The answer to what? His job is to come in and play better than Bourque was. Mission accomplished.
His job is to be a good third line (at least) NHL player.
"his job" according to you.
For me it was a 3rd liner that doesn't make me throw epithets at the tv.
For me it was a serviceable nhl 3rd liner.
He's done those 2 things.
Otherwise he's not making mistakes.
That's not to be overlooked, contributing is what you really really want, but not hurting is an excellent thing.
It's difficult to talk about Caron without talking about Bourque because you have to compare him to someone similar and Bourque is it. He is better than Bourque.
People were saying Bourque needed time, but his performance was up and down and more time wasn't the answer.
With Caron, more time might be the answer as his performance is stable and seems to have potential.
