I do. If it's not a good one they should have just traded him for a first.

They offered a first and Jensen for Clowe, it might be.

It could be Corrado. Plays with Faksa.

If it isn't one of their top 3 guys, why the heck can't we get a freaking 1st round pick. We'll wind up with 5 2nds and be left with a bunch of garbage

I'm starting not to trust this. Kypreos sounds like he pulled the gun too soon. No one else is reporting it.

Here's Pronman on him:

Quote:
Corey Pronman ‏@coreypronman

Kevin Connauton is a quality defense prospect. I ranked him #4 in my VAN prospect rankings last summer: http://www.hockeyprospectus.com/arti...articleid=1382
Quote:
4. Kevin Connauton, Defense
2010-11 Ranking: 8th
Date of birth: 02/23/1990
Age: 22
Height: 6'1''
Weight: 198
Shoots: Left
Statistics: 71 GP, 13 G, 33 P (Chicago-AHL)
Acquired: Third round, 83rd overall in 2009 by Vancouver

The Good: Connauton took several steps forward last year, from a talented project into a quality prospect. He's a plus skater who one NHL source describes as "tremendous". He is very good at leading the rush and jumping up when he senses a chance to create an odd-man chance. He has skill, too, as he can move the puck at a solid level and has a cannon from the point that is accurate. An AHL All-Star this year, Connauton wasn't sheltered and played at a top level while facing off versus top players.

The Bad: Connauton's defense showed significant strides last season, and while he doesn't project as a quality defensive player, he's made enough improvement in that area where he may not have to be sheltered by his coach in the NHL.

Projection: He could be a top-four defenseman.

A 2nd and a "B/C" prospect. This is return I thought we could have got for Ott, so we're certainly not improving.

More from Pronman:

Quote:
Corey Pronman ‏@coreypronman 54s
Connauton struggled to start the year, but improved in mid year. Offensive defenseman whose a great skater who can move the puck and shoot.
Quote:
Corey Pronman ‏@coreypronman 1m
Connauton's defense has always been and remains questionable/decent, but the value he has comes when he has the puck.

The lefty righty thing can't matter when trading for prospects.

Why didn't they just trade him for a first. Someone would have paid that. We get a second and a player who might replace Fortunus as our top AHL defensemen who's not good enough to make the NHL. Connauton is 23, never played in the NHL.

They probably got right down the middle.

Not great ... Not terrible. The prospect doesn't exactly fill a need though.
