Craig Conroy is very good hockey player and their second line is easily the equal of the Oilers second line.
The bottom line is their first line is far superior to the Oilers and the rest is, at best, a draw.
Calgary scored 254 goals last season and the Oilers scored 234.
They will miss Camalleri's contribution to be sure but they're gambling that Jaybo will not only provide more offense from the blueline but also help bring their GA down.
Doesn't look like a bad bet to me. But it is a bet.
Conroy is a good two way player, I'll give you that. I firmly believe that with the proper coaching Pouliot could become a very good two way player. That being said Conroy, Boyd and Sjostrom as a line is not anywhere near Pouliot, Moreau and Pisani. Not by a long shot.
There's no way to determine what effect Jaybo will have on their GA but I'm not thinking he's a miracle worker.
