Till this day I don't get how all of you guys fap every night to the thought of having this guy he's a joke. Like another poster mentioned Neil or Rupp? Sure... but Konopka? The guy sucks and I just don't get why people try and claim otherwise. He sucks.
There's a reason once again he's going to play for a lottery team on the 4th line.
Simply not true.
I've seen him play both in junior and the NHL. He doesn't "suck". Is he a great player? No. But he doesn't suck.
If you look at his minor league (AHL) stats and compare those to the minor league stats of our 4th liners (Enqvist, White etc) you will see they are comparable.
Plus this argument that he was a 4th liner on a bad team is BOGUS. You know who else was a 4th liner on the same team? Sean Bergenheim - and I would take Bergenheim over a bunch of guys on this team.
