And maybe that's not such a bad thing... 35, 1 assist, and the kicker, the absolute killer: another year at $2.4M left after this year. Just looking at the thread about our UFA situation next summer, well, having Conroy's deal stuck on the books would just be more headaches. He was a good player, and I'd suggest he could still be a useful player... sort of like Bonk is for us right now... but we've already got Bonk. No need to clone him, and particularly not when we have no cap solution for the move to begin with. Non-starter, IMO.
Didn't realize Conroy had 2 years left to his contract. Everything I had read mentioned one. If true that changes things. Well you could argue he'll get back to form and if he is his 2.4M won't look bad at all, but that said this would involve getting rid of some salary both now to take on Conroy's contract and next summer to compensate for this extra contract and still be able to sign the key UFAs.
