Ritchie is not Conroy's replacement. All he is, is a depth player, an AHL veteran that proved he could play on the bottom two lines. Oh, by the way, Conroy is worth 2.5 - 3 million, easily. If Craig isn't resigned, my bet is that the first line center will be filled from with-in, probably Nilson or Lombardi.
I'll disagree with you. I don't know of many Flames fans that would argue that Conroy is worth what he was paid last season. 8 goal scorers are pretty easy to come by, especially when a guy isn't winning the face-offs that he should be. Craig Conroy is a really swell guy, and one hell of an interview, but to say that he's worth more than $2 million is absurd. He's Charley Hustle out there, and brings a lot of enthusiasm to the team, but to be honest with you, he just doesn't do much more than that. I wish what ever team signs him a lot of luck. Craig Conroy at $3 million a season is a complete waste of cash. The money could be spent much better elsewhere.
