Conklin had 1 bad season and you take away everything he's done in the past? And you even go further by saying Auld s a better option?... Auld didn't even start 10 games last season. Of course the sample is way less representative... Conklin always was a very good backup, one of the best in the NHL.
This is a great analysis of Laich imo. I think the exact same thing now that you mention it, except Laich doesn't have a cup like Malone. I don't think we can afford a Laich contract when we already have Gomer pile and Spacegoat.

+1 about Conklin as well. Only problem is, he's a little too expensive. He'll probably want around $1.5m but maybe after last season, he'll take $1m.

Yea going after a player that the 28th place team doesn't want doesn't = profit imo.
