Don't forget he's paired with Baumgartner, who's not exactly the most solid defenceman. He was also a -2.

On a side note though, Ryan Parent was a +4. That's good to see. He could be valuable to us down the road if we decide to trade one of our D.

Baumgartner's not exactly the greatest mentor if you want to learn defense. When you put a young offensive D-man like Connauton with him that's just asking for trouble. Really surprised when the Canucks signed him again, as I heard that he'd been playing rather poorly for the Moose most of last season.

checked he's 2nd in the AHL with 5 goals scored now. Top guy has 6. Atleast he knows how to put the puck in the net.

Send down Volpatti for a few games and get K-Conn running the 2nd PP unit and see what happens. If it doesn't work, send him back down and bring Patti back up, if it does work, send Ballard off and do something better with the cap space.

He's still terrible defensively. No way he gets called up before Sulzer, Tanev and Sauve--in that order. Maybe even Parent...

He isn't 'terrible defensively' he still has to work on his defensive game, yes, but he has improved a lot since being drafted.

Anyway, the Canucks wouldn't be relying on him for defense, he'd play bottom pairing and run the 2nd PP unit - just like St.Louis doesn't rely on Russell for defense, or MAB in T-Bay (probably the worst defensive player in the league), and if it doesn't work fine.

K-Conn got a first assist on the Haydar goal tonight.

Another 2 points for Connauton tonight (1G,1A).

A rocket shot by Connauton that beats the goalie clean at 1:31.
