Agree with this, with the exception of the bolded. If he is not a Murray type player, then why did Murray trade his biggest (literally and figuratively) trade chip for him just this past season, a chip that multiple teams were bidding for?
Because we needed help for the playoff push and another scoring forward was needed. Plus we gotten an extra 4th round pick. He traded an asset for another asset. Conacher has a better chance of increasing his value than Bishop who was a RFA.

Bryan Murray playing asset management at its finest.
Traded a second for Bishop
Traded Bishop for Conacher( value is a 2nd rounder) and a 4th rounder
If a team looks at Conacher as a top 6 forward, I could see a team offering a late first or early seconder
