    He seems like a passenger. His size hurts us.

    Still a bad trade.

    He's being effective still, hasn't fully found his scoring touch but remember in the pre-season he was on fire. More importantly, he's also drawing penalties and forcing himself in front of the net to create traffic -- like screening on Zibanejad's goal last night if I remember correctly.

    Still early to say, but he's being more useful than Bishop which we weren't going to use long-term.

    Completely disagree.

    His speed on the forechecking is badly needed. An he's one of the few this season who's proven to CONSISTENTLY battle in front of the net.

    He created the screen for Mika'd goal last night.

    Conacher doesn't even make the list of things that are wrong with this team.

    Not getting the points, but he is definitely one of the few bright spots to the team so far.

    Failed experiment - trade him for someone who'll get us 30 goals a season.

    I dont get this Conacher hate. Players like Michalek, Greening, Condra, Smith are players, who really deserves hard criticues.

    He's been great so far, definitely one of the positives for the team so far.

    Bad thread is bad.

    I'll never understand the stupidity it takes to single out players who are actually contributing like Conacher, MacArthur and Condra.

    This.


    Conacher is a good 3rd liner winger right now. You can't expect him to be a top 6 forward. With 3rd line expectations, he's been absolutely fine. One of the few guys that skates hard and battles.

    Everyone on the team except Spetsa is less than a point per game. Start gutting the organization. Call up everyone from Bingo - if they each don't score in their first game just start working the phones and trading until you get someone who does.

    Is it safe to say that several posters on this board have no idea what they are talking about?

    Conacher has been excellent. Him being aggressive in front of the net has already led to a few goals.

    A little bit harsh of a thread, Conachers been decent. However looking back on the trade, it would of been nice to package Bishop with a pick instead to pick up more of a solid top 6 forward. Anyways, I still think Conacher will get better and provide depth that Ottawa will need in an 82 game schedule

    It would be nice if he had a few more points, but for the most part he's been working hard and making things happen. He's also been pretty disciplined out there and hasn't taken a lot of penalties. Overall he's been allright.

    I think it would be very unsafe to say that Cory Conacher is unable to help this team be better.

    Already made a difference in the playoffs. If nothing else, his aggressiveness wears off on the rest when they see a guy that size crashing and battling. My theory is he makes the whole team a little tougher.

    Conacher has been one of our better forwards, along with ryan, turris and macarthur.


    You're way out to lunch here.

    What a joke Edmonton. Looking at how well Bishop has played with Tampa so far, I think a lot of teams are regretting not trading for him

    He's probably our hardest working player, why can't we actually appreciate our players once in a while instead of whipping them.

    He's been better than: Michalek, Greening, Smith, Neil, Kassian, Da Costa, and Pageau.
