11 striaght games, 10 games that Conklin has started. thats just too much for a rookie goaltender the next 4 games are against Colorado (friday), San Jose (Sunday), Minnesota (next Wednesday) tthen Pittsburgh (Dec 6th Saturday) 4 games in 9 days, If salo isn't back Big Valley needs to get a start against San Jose or Pittsburgh. Conklin deserves a rest
I was thinking the same thing earlier today as well. I was asking myself why he keeps playing. Not only were the Oilers due for a loss here tonight, but Conklin was due for a loss.
