In response to shortpops' comment:
With all due respect what is wacky about facts that are easily verified by reviewing their statistics. Caron got the job because he is a known quantity that has been indoctrinated with the coach's system and with 6 years of youth on his side plus his numero uno draft pick status that sealed the deal.
Please check your math again before calling it "fact"and here's what the coach said today:
With Johnson being placed on waivers, it also means that Jordan Caron wasn't, and will get his chance as the 13th forward with the team to start 2013-14.
Depending on Soderberg's status, he could even have a chance to play in the home opener.
"The last couple of games, I thought there was a little bit more urgency in his game, in doing the things we talked about," Julien said of Caron, who capped of his camp with a goal in the 5-0 win over the Jets.
"His whole camp was what we know about Jordan; reliable and doing the things he has to do. But we asked him to do a little bit more."
"So, not just because he scored a goal, but he had some chances and we used him on the penalty kill and different areas. He seemed to generate a little bit more, but that has to continue."
"He’s 23 years old, he’s still a young player, and he’s a player that an organization doesn’t want to give up on too early. So we feel as coaches that we can help him improve and we’re going to work with him to make him improve in those areas."
