I do believe Etem scored more goals than Connolly last year. Could be wrong...
But Etem not cracking his squad wasn't because he wasn't ready. Selanne's return prevented him from having a spot on the second line, and Carlyle wanted more physicality on the third line (why DSP is there instead) and there was no way in hell we were playing him on the 4th line.
So we really can't know until we compare the two side by side in the NHL. If he was AHL eligible I guarantee you he would've taken DSP's spot right now in a call up the way our offense has been going.
