    Good for him. I'll always remember him for being traded to Ottawa for Ben Bishop

    You could see he "Con" (stole) a whole "Acher" (acre) of land in Florida with this deal.

    I'll always remember him for everyone on HF calling for Yzerman to be fired after trading him for Bishop.

    Also put on waivers today. My guess is the 1 year extension was done with the intention of discouraging other teams from picking him up.

    Glad he got paid some money. Nice depth to have in case injuries and a good ahl player. Seems like a nice guy to have in the locker room.

    Not entirely true, there was a lot of people who were outraged. I was one of them. Not here officially, but personally I was pissed at the time.

    Yeah, he has a strange sort of value to the organization. Good enough to play in the NHL when needed, not so important to the org that we can't sit him down for long stretches, and a guy who can tear the AHL apart. And we're big on "winning traditions" at all levels. Conacher is the kind of good trooper we need to help with that. He serves his role, minor as it is, very well.

    Nah, the reaction to that trade was very, very negative, overall. The thread still exists.

    My first reaction was "WTF!?!?!" Never thought we'd give up Conacher WITH a 4th, but then a deeper look revealed Conacher had only put up like 5 or 7 points in his last 25ish games. A lot of people calmed down then. I don't think I was on the forum at the time, but I think most TB fans had a similar reaction, with outliers on both sides.

    I hope the Leafs pick him up. We have won Cups with a Conacher!

    Very good 12th-13th forward. Can score some goals. Great injury insurance.

    yep I was not that happy at the time I wanted Miller from buffalo but we needed a goalie badly we only had Lindback but I thought giving up conacher was a big risk at that time

    Ugh. Yes...Bitter Sens fan here.

    I do remember most hockey fans I know (including myself) thought it was a great trade for the Sens at the time. In retrospect it was a catastrophe.

    Conacher had boss like stats and an endless motor. Seemed destined to be the next MSL. Im still really surprised he never made it tbh.

    I read this in Bobby Hill's voice for some reason.
