Watched Connauton play a bit in the WHL and he's a complete rover out there, skates well and is an amazing PPQB. Don't know that his game's translated all that well to the pros, though, where he's probably paid more for his shortcomings in his own zone. If he gets a chance at the NHL, I'd say he has a pretty good shot of being at least M-A Bergeron-lite, at least. That's a big if, though.
How the **** can joe get joe morrow for b morrow, then turn around and get this return for Roy. Does he have any concept of asset management? Does he not understand he has until tomorrow to build up a solid bidding war? I mean we had to trade Roy, and I'm happy he knew that, but you have to believe he could have gotten more than that
Why are you guys surprised at the return?
Rental player who may not re-sign in Vancouver. He wasn't going to get a first and he wasn't going to get you a better prospect based on that he's a rental.
He's not Jay Bouwmeester and he's surely not a star player. Why is everyone surprised at this?
Center????-So Robidas must be gone right or even daley? Morrow Oleksiak, K-conn-Nemeth Dillon -that's 5 near ready guys and no centers -man look at a depth chart newy
Other than Dillon, how many of those are sure-fire NHL players? Adding more is a good thing. Chances are two of Morrow, Oleksiak, K-conn, and Nemeth will not pan out. Don't be so quick to assume every young player on the farm is going to work in the NHL.
