Concacher Waived in Preamble to Bizarro Trade Deadline

Ottawa Senators Official NHL Headshots

Sometimes I think I won’t ever understand the NHL.

Cory Conacher is a young, cheap player who had a very promising rookie season just last year. He was promising enough that Ottawa would give up a goaltender who dominated in the AHL and looked very, very good in NHL spot duty. He was promising enough that people took Yzerman to town for being fleeced in that same trade. And now he’s gone. For nothing.

Granted, Conacher’s numbers aren’t great this season — playing top line minutes and with great talent, he’s on pace to be less than a 30 point player, and he has only 4 goals. And, this is likely just a preamble to another deal, a move to make room for incoming additions.

But I can’t help but ask…how can a team not get at least a late round pick for a player who was so highly valued, and so recently? He still has decent possession numbers, and possibly the intangibles to make a difference. (He seems to get under the Habs’ skin every time.) Is he really worth less than, say, Matt Hendricks?
