    I'm all serous news, we could sign Conacher to a 2-way to help Bingo. He also knows boucher and his system quite well. More a ringer for Bingo.

    I don't have a link but it would definitely be more than 100K USD I would imagine, with better social services and a better quality of life. I think the only way he signs here is with a one-way deal.

    This was updated last summer:
    http://www.2112hockeyagency.com/play-in-europe.html

    Swiss league salary range was $150-450K for NLA and $50-125K for NLB. Conacher plays for Bern, in the NLA.

    I would sign him for sure though. If they move to Belleville it will be close to home for him as well

    I don't know what he's making, but it wouldn't be that much of an adjustment to sign him for $150K on an AHL contract. Whether the Sens would pay that, I don't know. There is a precedent for paying more for what is effectively an AHL only contract.

    It would also give him a better chance at making it back to the NHL. Still, who knows. A lot would have to come together for that to happen.

    I don't think it's a bad idea. He could definitely excel in terms ahl and might be a good callup.

    I'm not sure he'd be all that interested in playing for Ottawa again. Meh. It's not really worth discussing. He'd be fine, but there are lots of other players who wouldn't (necessarily) be as expensive.

    Really don't see why he wouldn't with Boucher bring a positive influence on him, but yah, I doubt it matters much.

    Boucher needs to be positive influence on the guys we do have right now(especially Hoff).

    If he sticks over the next few years I imagine they might move a few players in/out that fit Boucher's system better but no need to track down every player that had success playing for Boucher in the past.
