We need to start to create more spaces for prospects like Stone, Hoffman, Noesen or potentially our first round pick this year and Condra is an expendable asset.
I disagree with this. Condra is our best defensive forward and our best penalty-killer. The same penalty kill which ranked first in the league. He's speedy and can get the puck in the defensive zone and transition it up ice. His problem is his offensive IQ and lack of finishing.

Condra won't ever get a lot of money in the NHL. I think his offensive game can still round out a bit, but his real assets are his defensive game. He's a great energy player and great on a shutdown line.
