Teams have a salary-cap interest in getting as much NHL playing time out of an ELC as the player can handle. On-the-job NHL development certainly has its risks, but in a cap world, it also has serious rewards.
True Say. I want to see Connauton solid on the back end before he gets the call, I think that's the best way to develop a Offensive minded guy. But he HAS taken strides this year from the start of the season through the playoffs. I don't think it's far fetched at all to think he just needs a one year stint on the Moose to learn the Pro game and make the leap to the Major League.
