He has shown he can play against the best lines out there, shut them down, even outscore them. I think he would be a huge part of the Flames in the post season.
I said the same thing about Niedermayer last year, and look what he did. You cannot overstate the importance of a great checker with skill at playoff time.
IF the Flames make the playoffs having 2 good defensive centers like Conroy and Yelle will be a huge benefit as it allows you to match up against the top seeded teams who often roll 2 great lines.

I'm thinking that (if budgets allow) we'll probably keep Conroy as our own 'rentaplayer' (like Marchant in Edm last year) unless we got a mindboggling trade offer
