He sucked the last two years.


.... he had a .921 sv% in 2009-2010.

and coming from the "could not be more correct department" - NFM!

It's funny that people just look at his stats and not the WAY he played there, it's hard to put up stellar numbers when your defense in front of you is a complete SIEVE... also, Conklin is not the next coming of Dom Hasek, he is what he is a damn solid BACKUP, which, coincidentally, is what we needed...

This is the perfect fit.


He did struggle last season, but not the season before. Granted, the Blues had a very depleted roster last season.

6 Million left if he is taking a million.

I said before that I actually wanted to see Larsson play in the NHL, so I am disappointed by that. But Conklin was choice four for me. Osgood, Larsson, Volkoun, Conklin. I am by no means mad, and I am sure he will do fine as long as Howard is healthy.


Must have been old numbers I was looking at. Just under 6.5mil left.

I know we're splitting hairs here, but I've got their cap space at $6,828,788 with the removal of Emmerton and McDonald and the addition of ConkBlock all included.

It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

I'm stoked that Conklin came back. I think he is a far better goalie than people give him credit for. His numbers in the '09 season were outstanding for a guy who had to take over the starting job for a bit, while Osgood got his s*** together.

Welcome back Conks!

Lets get this season underway!

No worries, in that thread were was "wishful thinking" by a Boston's Bruins fan who said they were going to sign Stamkos...

Hence the "that is Stamkos money"

I need a realignment/balance to my sarcasm frontend, all these MI pot Holes and heatwave has done a number.

I think we all should pitch in for a fund and buy Ty a tie as a welcome back...

Since when is a netminder signing non-controversial in the D? In my opinion this is a solid, solid signing. I love it all the way around. He was great when he was here last. I was sad to see him leave back in the day.

C'mon - you must admit that out of former Red Wing-turned-Blues goal tenders you would much rather have ConkBlock back instead of Manny (Not counting Ozzie of course).
