I like that if someone takes a run at Alfie, Karlsson, Butler, Spezza, etc they'll have Neil, Konopka, Carkner and Smith to deal with. We should be one of the tougher teams to play in the East physicality wise.

We have too many guys that could be used in the bottom 6, we have Neil, Smith, and to a lesser degree Greening that can fight.

Unless this signing means Winchester is gone, I can grow to like it. I hate Winnies game tho, imo hes a waste of space.
Winchester is the 13th forward, we kind of need an extra forward with all the injury prone players we have.
By the sounds of it , I don't think the organization plans on Zach Smith developing as a 4th line C/LW. IMO with the Konopka signing , Zach will find a role on a checking line. They liked his skill, competitive edge and hockey sense a couple of years ago.

Guy wants to be here. Can't ask more than that. He will be there for the team, and he can win faceoffs. Team guy, very glad to see him here.

I think so too. They want Smith to replace Kelly's role, and I think he would be perfect for it. He would even bring pluses over Kelly in terms of size and aggression in that role even though he is not as fast or with as high IQ.

Condra could also end up being the 13th forward, Winchester has more experience & can play RW or C.

Agree 100%. Winchester's game is so vanilla. He isn't great at anything and brings zero jam to his game. If you're only going to chip in with a handful of goals, you better be fighting or hitting guys like crazy.

Condra scored 2 more goals than Jessie in almost 40 less games played.

Condra was on pace for about 20 goals in his first year (playing 15 mins/g). Winchester hit his career high at 4 in 72 games(but only playing 10 mins/g) I can't remember who condra was playing with most of the time though.

Condra could be a good replacement for Kelly's role. Winchester has shown he would not be a good replacement for kelly.
