    We need this as our checking line starting next season. McCarron has 1G and 5A in 16 OHL games... if Montreal is going to wait for his development to become a top 6 eligible winger, then it will take a LONGGG time.. so might as well put our 1st rounder to good use by using his big body and fighting skills to the test in the checking line with low minutes

    3 decent sized fighters from the line that needs to prove more. Since White has no points and Moen has 2 assists, we can shift the lines up pending on the team we're facing. If we're facing a relatively non-physical team then we can replace McCarron with Moen, and if its the Bruins or Sens we can add Parros for White so it becomes Parros - Prust - McCarron (if Parros gets resigned that is)

    Let me know what you guys think

    You can't recall prospects from the CHL.

    Even then... horrible.

    McCarron on a fourth line as a "fighter".

    The pixie dust gems you guy come up with sometimes !

    ohl level is competitive. I said in the past for some usa guys, its hard to translate at the ohl level at first because of the level of competition. These young guys are good. Mccaron I dont see top 6 potential at all. He does have decent speed but its far from enough to be dominant in the nhl.

    Yah instead of waiting for him to become a top 6 because it will take "a LONGGG time" we should **** up his development and turn him into a 4th liner :shakehead

    We might be saying it's a terribad thread but unless it's closed it's going to last for at least a week along with all the other terribad threads.

    Yeah it's so true, McCarron is a bust, same with Fucale & Collberg

    We should cut our losses :shakehead

    I don't think Big Mac is a top 6 forward but he should fit in on the 3rd line in a secondary offensive role. During camp he had good chemistry with Bournival so I expect him and Bournival to be our future 3rd line.

    ?-Galchenyuk-Gallagher
    Pacioretty-Eller-Collberg
    Prust-Bournival-McCarron

    Prust's contract will be expired by the time McCarron is in the NHL. Prust will likely be a garbage player by then too with the amount of shoulder injuries he has.

    If i get this right : McCarron is struggling in the OHL, therefore he should play in the NHL as a 19yo. Strong logic there Watson!

    Would you leave Big Mac alone please. He needs time, he is still RAW.
    He needs at LEAST 2 years. Won't hit his prime for 5 years. He is NOT a 50 goal guy, he might be a huge power forward if he pans out. 25 goals will be his best year but he will open up a ton of ICE space for his line mates. If it turns out right he will also be able to " take care of business "

    im sad that we passed up on a player like klimchuk just because of our desire for size. we basically peer-pressured management into drafting mccaron, same thing happened with leblanc

    Bottom 6 guy in OHL in one year becoming a 4th line NHLer. Sounds right. Add to that NHL is so much easier for player developpement than the OHL.

    If you want McCarron to become the second version of Mike Komisarek, why not...go ahead.

    I think the worst part of that line is White, not McCarron.
