[Claim] Arizona Claims D Kevin Connauton off waivers from Columbus

Recommended Posts

Isles have lost 2 D recently that are out for a bit.

Would it not be a good thing to send Pedan back to Utica as he wont be getting back into our lineup. We then in THEORY could if Benning WAS interested could put in a claim and have Connauton as 7th D as insurance for the road trip till Sbisa returns. Then PLace him back on waivers, or better yet waiver weber. 

Good chances he clears, but a team may want depth and take a chance, as when he got picked up last year on waivers he had a 9g season in 54 gp.

haha Roy was horrible here, another case of Gillis trading a prospect and a pick for a vet that didn't work out...

Connauton I don't think will fit here... unless if he can play on the right side. Hutton, Pedan and Sbisa look to be better now and in the future

Connauton was another prospect who fell victim of when he was in the ahl he wasnt under control by us. Another Chicago wolves player, like Rodin.

He has offensive upside, probably will never be more than a bottom pair guy, but might be a Yannik Weber of the LHD variety, and could be on the 2nd unit PP.

Oldnews will love this comment, but I would not be opposed to putting in a claim, he has some size, allows us to move Pedan down, and realistically we should be waiving weber if nobody offers a late or conditional pick for him
