Conroy said – after clearing waivers – that “I gotta talk to my girls. I just don’t think going down (to the minors) is an option.”
It’s not an option Conny, because the AHL is no place for a 39-year-old. A 39-year-old who’s hoping for injuries to his friends to get back to the show. Plus you’ve gotta think that even then he’s number 3 in line behind some prospects who need some NHL minutes.
I’m glad to see he got his 1000 games, and that he got to retire a Flame. But it’s time.
In other news… did you know that Anton Babchuk registers one hit every 85.5 minutes? Brutal. That’s good enough for the worst average in the league.
