Not bad. I hated Conacher from his college days. He was a little sh*t. Talented kid though.

Neat.  If we give Omark a look, we should definitely give Conacher a look.

good pickup I think. Like D4rk, I hated his college days, but mostly bc he was one of our big rivals.

I like this for 2 reasons

No reason not to give him a chance.....

Plus, that may mean a Sabre trade is imminent

hmmmm, makes me wonder what the issue was that made the Sens give up on him.
You gotta figure that the Sens wouldn't just give him away for nothing if there wasn't some concerns, they can't be that dumb
Couldn't they just include him as a thrown in on a deal for Stewart?

He's not Gerbe, but I assume his upside is about the same.

One thing is for sure. Tim Murray knows the player well.  He must think that he is worth bringing in.

He is listed at 5'8" 180, so while not Gerbe size he's certainly one of the smaller players in the league.

Currently on the last year of his entry level contract and is a RFA at the end of this year.

I think anyone who is excited about him points to the 12'-13' season in Tampa Bay where he scored 24 points in 35 games. That was with Lecalvier as his center though so a certain bit of inflation is noted.

struggling a bit more in Ottawa this year with 20pts in 60 games.

At 24 why not kick the tires on this one. Like Omark, if it doesn't work it cost the Sabres nothing.

This is pretty much where I'm at. I don't think he's any good, but then again, we don't want to be any good.

Who's going to get in his way if we take care of all the business that needs to be taken care of?  Sure as ###### he'll be top six then.

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