Why is it OK for Conroy to get away scoring only 8 goals on the top line and still receive tons of praise?
You could look past last season and see that Conroy scored 49 goals and 134 points in the 2 seasons before last. He's showed he's not a stiff in the recent past. That said, I don't think anyone disputes the fact that Demitra is a better scorer but after him, there ain't much else in free agency. Guys like Stumpel and Nylander aren't even as good all around as Conroy.
