Considering Canucks play even the worst of our D for about 12-13 ES minutes a night, Connauton is simply not a fit. He could easily cost this team a goal or two if he were given that much ES ice-time. Or you're double-shifting other guys which is not ideal either since it's more likely to cause injuries.
That's ignoring that we have to send someone down to fit him in and risk losing them
never thought of that, good point. we certainly can't afford to lose anyone else
