The Boston Bruins have been working to find a use for their former first round pick Jordan Caron. While the Bruins dumped high profile, high scoring players like Tyler Seguin and Phil Kessel, they kept a player like Caron hoping that one day he would become a second Patrice Bergeron. It looks like Bruins GM attempted at some point to make a deal for Caron, but it just didn’t happen, and now the Bruins are going to explore other options.

BOS puts Jordan Caron on waivers.

I can’t see Bob McKenzie getting this information wrong. The Bruins had a tight cap problem, and it seemed that Caron (who took a league minimum contract) would end up on the roster due to B’s financial crunch. Caron had shown improvement during the preseason, and it may have increased his value enough that another NHL team may pick him up. There are teams that are lacking fourth line players, and in that role he has a chance. Jordan Caron was not the only Bruins player put on waivers today. This information (also provided by McKenzie), has two other potential players going on waivers.

Chris Cunningham’s chances of making the roster were slim. (Most of us had him down with Bobby Robins.) It’s very likely that Cunningham will survive the waiver feeding frenzy and go back down to Providence.

David Warsofsky is a bit of a surprise, but there are so many talented blueliners in Boston, this move was likely coming. Of the three players put on waivers, Warsofsky is the most likely of the three to get picked up. He’s got a great skill set, and plays like Torey Krug. There are teams that still have trouble with filling their roster with quality defensemen, and Warsofsky would fit the bill nicely for them.
