Nothing shocking here but I was really hoping EJ would have accepted. It would have been great for his continued development into a Norris contender and he could have played close to 30 minutes a game. He's probably pretty beat up though with the long season coming off a long rehab.

I'm guessing Conklin didn't want to play second fiddle to Esche or another goalie potentially added after the first round.
Where did you see that? Strickland's most recent article at Hockeybuzz doesn't discuss it.
