AHL player, he does not belong on NHL ice.

Marlie fans seem to like him, more depth, nothing more nothing less.

jesus christ. That's three already.

Career AHLer. Classic tweener. All things considered (salary, injuries), I would prefer Aucoin over Connolly.

He's a pass first type of player (right handed shot), sound familiar? Maybe the Islanders put him on JT's wing.

I was thinking that maybe they brought him in to provide Reasoner with some 4th line competition. I would have thought that Czikas could have provided that, but maybe they want to give him more meaningful ice time.

Sounds like the 2nd coming of Randy Robitaille (the better Robitalle).

There's a guy in my fantasy football league who makes several waiver claims every week, swapping out one backup tight end or #6 receiver for another, week after week. Never has any impact on his team, just enriches the pot with waiver fees. I feel like Garth belongs in that league.

Let me just say how much I hate this little arrogant antagonizing *****! You want to talk about a bi%ch. On the good side he is a very creative AHL player that will make the Bport team better offensively if he gets there. He plays defense as well as a quadrapelegic on skates.

He has been an Excellent AHL'er (777 points in 673 AHL games), just can't translate that to the NHL. Has had THREE 95+ point seasons, including 106 points in 2009-10. It's gonna be pretty tough for him to show his passing prowess, on the 4th line. Really makes no sense to me to make this move. Maybe he's a good penalty killer ?

Keith Aucoin played very well for Washington Caps in the playoffs last year as there number 4 center. Look for Aucoin to center our fourth line and Reasoner will go to the press box. Aucoin is a scorer in the AHL but can be a defense role player in NHL. Might see some PP action as well if Boyes struggles.

he's been excellent in the AHL this year, especially in the last month and a half. He'll be awesome for Bridgeport with players like Nino, KK, Nelson, Sundstrom that are so young.

He played 14 playoff games for the Caps last year but I don't imagine he'll make the NYI, despite the obvious holes at centre (especially with Bailey out).

I think this is just a smart, depth move.

I might have taken a chance on Connolly but he wasn't very good last year with the Leafs. He'd have been a reclamation project (of sorts, kinda like Brad Boyes) but with a much higher price tag.

5’8, 171-pound, hooray for the small players (I'm 5'4"), no way is this guy NHL caliber although didn't he play well for the Caps in the playoffs?

Guy reminds me of Kip Miller...consistently tears it up in the AHL, but doesn't seem to solidify a job in the NHL.

Did he really have 70 pts thru 43 games (11 goals, 59 assists) in the AHL last season. Jeez.

I first thought we claimed Adrian Aucoin for the blue line.

I think Aucion may well have been brought in to tutor some of the kids at the Bridge when he eventually goes there. His AHL stats are great and he could be very useful there. Whether it's him or Reasoner on the 4th line really doesn't matter all that much, but I think this is mainly about getting enough bodies for opening night.

If Aucoin and Finley can end up in Bport to finish the season along with the players they have now, Bport can make a good playoff run and get these kids what they need "Tough high pressure meaningful games"...

Cizikas needs more time in the AHL, he wasn't ready this year. Next year lose Aucoin and Reasoner, bring in Strome and Cizikas.
