Cory Conacher won't play Thursday, hopes to join #Sabres Friday in Florida. Guy is very excited about coming to Buffalo, a "second home."

good pick up. excited for him. he sounds very happy to come to buffalo. If it doesn't work out? no cost and he at least won't hurt the team.
He works his ASS off every shift. He was misused here, cause our coaching staff is not very smart. He was told to go to the front of the net rather than use his skill which he does have. the guy is tough as anyone but he's also as small as anyone. needs to slow down a bit and make some plays. he has the ability. similar to gerbe i think (actually a bit bigger i guess)

will be cheering for him.

Please. You started *****ing about something that hasn't even happened but I'm guessing you hope it does so you can complain about it.

Do you not see the irony in moaning about acquiring a player for free because you speculate it will lead people to moaning?

When all you're spending is a roster spot, it's an absolute no-brainer to grab a guy like Conacher and give him what amounts to a no-cost 20 game tryout.

He's all hustle and heart but no height! You'll like him but realize the more he plays the worse your team is.

Amy Moritz ‏@amymoritz - Cory Conacher said he was excited be picked up by Buffalo.
Loves the city. Loves the hockey. Wants to be part of the team's future.

Cory Conacher ‏@conhockey19 - I couldn't be more excited about this opportunity to play with the Buffalo Sabres!
Great team, Great fans, and Great city! #secondhome

Amy Moritz ‏@amymoritz - Conacher is still in Calgary and said he will fly back to Ottawa. Immigration papers need to be completed.
Should join Sabres in Florida.

Amy Moritz ‏@amymoritz - So, don't expect Conacher in the lineup tomorrow night, but could be when the Sabres play the Panthers Friday.

James Gordon ‏@SensReporter - Conacher's first game with Sabres likely Friday against FLA.
Going back to Ottawa, then has to deal with customs, then off to join new team.

LaxSabre - Darn, it would have been neat for his Sabres debut to be against one of his former teams.

Amy Moritz ‏@amymoritz - "I have to want the puck a little more and not be afraid to make a mistake here or there. Take risks.”
Cory Conacher. #Sabres

James Gordon ‏@SensReporter - Conacher: "I don't want to leave Ottawa but if you do get picked up, it's someone who wants you."

He comes over to another teams board to slam a player that just left. Should tell you how much to value his opinion Kids a gem but still very raw, great place for him to develop his game.
