In a nut shell, this kid never takes a shift off he is a ball of "no quit" energy. He has great vision and hand eye coordination, for some reason he thinks he's 6' 4" 210lbs. He has high end speed and despite his size he always sticks up for his teammates, Yzerman stated there was several teams wanting him, there is a reason for that. When you go into the lightning store at the Times Forum there is only 4 jerseys on the racks Lecavalier, St. Louis, Stamkos, and Cory Conacher. Nuff said. Please take care of Honey Badger in Ottawa you will love him.
I've seen you post a lot about Conacher since we acquired him -- obviously you are a big fan of his. Do you have any player comparisons that he favorably matches up with? I've heard all of Fleury, St. Louis and Gallagher thrown around. In my limited viewings I think the Gallagher one is a good one except a little less physical with better hands, but what do you think?

Cory has been loved by fans and team mates everywhere he has played. I hope he does really well for you. Fearless, hard working, great hands. He is a distant relation to several Hockey Hall of Fame Conachers.

I think your dead on in your reasons and your comparison's to Gallagher. You'll have no problem with finding fans of his. All you can ask for as a fan is guys that give it there all, thats what he brings.

Another Lightning fan here. Marty St. Louis was his boyhood idol and that's who he plays like. Marty took him under his wing while he was here and told him to play in the "dirty" areas. He's not afraid to mix it up. We'll miss him but considering our goal tending problems it was worth it to swap him for Bishop. Hope he works out for you folks.

Bishop rocks!

Thanks It's probably been asked before but where did "honey badger" come from?

And yes, you got yourselves a number one goalie! You'll be listening to this a lot:

IMO Conacher is more physical, faster, and has better hands than Gallagher.

He is going to be fun to watch!

I expect the little guy to muck it up in the corners right to the injured reserve and become a shell of what he could have been.

He will just sleep it off, like honey badgers do after they have been bitten by a Cobra

Lol, so? He grew up in the Toronto area. Spezza was the same way, as are many other Sens players.

Don't worry, they always learn eventually.

EDIT: beaten to it.

Conacher is now a Sens fan. I'm sure he'll grow to hate the Queafs being on our team long enough.

I hear they are hemming up "Little" Mike Comrie's #89 jersey as we speak!

I really hope so, it's probably easier for a player to change teams but as a fan it's for me impossible

Kadri was a die hard Montreal fan, don't forget that.

The way this season's been going, my prediction is season ending injury.

Seriously though I'm not sure, interested to see tonight though.

It's really not even worth discussing who these players were fans of as children. They all had one or two and there's 30 teams in the league....they grew up and they have a job now. The Toronto kids are often happy to be in Ottawa just to be close to home.

Exactly my feeling, too. I get queasy any time there's talk of one of my favourite players possibly going to the Laffs.
