He's not good/healthy enough to be a starter. Too expensive to be a backup. Ideal situation would be a 1A/1B for him.

Hard to see anyone picking him up just because of the position... Lots of goalies, only 60 NHL jobs

He's actually good enough with his numbers to be a starter. Just not healthy enough to play that many games.

Didn't he break his foot from kicking the boards in practice?

Based on a single good half-season. I mean, Pavelec was the best goaltender for a few months in 2010, then he fell off the face of the earth. Decent goalies can be very impressive in short bursts, but the really talented goaltenders are solid month-to-month, year-to-year.

He's never been a starter and now he's 30 going on 31. Career-high is 34 games in a season (and that's behind a rather unimpressive Backstrom since Lemaire left). He's never really had the conditioning or the talent to be a 60+ game starter and, obviously, now having MS means he likely never will.

It wasn't practice, apparently. It was an off-ice altercation with a teammate.

I would pick Connauton up on waivers. Seems like a weird move by Nill.

Around 12 mins of ice time, a plus 4 rating, and a cap hit of under 700k.

i remember watching the canucks tv segments on kevin.. I wonder if he does get scooped up.

Connauton has two assists in eight games this season and had eight points in 36 games as a rookie last year but hasn't been able to earn playing time over Jamie Oleksiak or the newly recalled John Klingberg. The move could be to get him some more playing time at the AHL level, clear space for some sort of other move or just give the Stars more flexibility with the roster over the next month if he clears.

Connauton, 24, has a cap hit of $683,000 and is in the second year of a three year contract. If the plan is to send him to the Texas Stars, Dallas would need to call up another defensemen (or acquire one via other means) to carry a full roster of seven.

If Canucks do inquire for cannaughton I'm guessing WD will have some say since he coached him in the AHL
