Who’s the Odd Man Out for the New York Islanders?

#468403375 / gettyimages.comAfter the surprise signings of Mikhail Grabovski and Nikolai Kulemin last week, the New York Islanders are left with an abundance of forwards but still lacking on defense. This leaves fans asking the question, who might Garth Snow trade to get that top 4 d-man they desperately need?First, the untouchables. John Tavares goes without saying, as does Kyle...

Sabre rattling: McBain not qualified, Conacher in limbo

Tim Murray’s dramatic rebuild in Buffalo continued on Monday, as he declined to make a qualifying offer for RFA defenseman Jamie McBain, and said RFA forward Cory Conacher would “maybe” get one. That Buffalo parted ways with McBain, 26, is pretty interesting. He played a lot last year — 69 games, averaging over 20 minutes a night — and had decent offensive output with...

WATCH: Lightning give up bad own goal

Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos threw a pass to the point during a delayed penalty on the Buffalo Sabres when the puck missed the defenseman, banked off the boards, and trickled down the ice into the net. This is always something guys have to worry about when your goalie is pulled and is a momentum killer. Cory Conacher was credited with the goal, which is especially funny...

Cory Conacher Had A Hilarious Reaction To Accidentally Receiving John Scott’s Helmet In The Penalty Box

During last night’s Sabres-Oilers game, Buffalo forward Cory Conacher received a two-minute roughing minor during a scrum in the Oilers offensive zone. He lost in his helmet in the process and wound up receiving the wrong bucket while sitting in the penalty box. The helmet in question actually belonged to John Scott, Conacher’s largest teammate who stands at 6’8 tall and has...

Conacher’s tips help Sabres snap losing streak

Someone other than Tyler Ennis or Drew Stafford actually scored for the Buffalo Sabres here Thursday night. No coincidence the Sabres actually won a game. Former Canisius College star Cory Conacher notched his first two goals as a Sabre with a pair of nifty deflections as Buffalo broke away from a 1-1 tie through two periods and beat the Edmonton Oilers, 3-1, in Rexall Place. ...

Two sizes too small

Buffalo Sabres forward Cory Conacher headed to the penalty box without a helmet, so the referees in Thursday's Oilers-Sabres game gave Conacher a certain enforcer named John Scott's helmet. Let's just say that it didn't fit:

Sabres Winger Cory Conacher Got Patrick Kane’s OK Before Choosing No. 88

Buffalo Sabres winger Cory Conacher decided on wearing No. 88 when he was picked up from Ottawa off waivers on March 5, but not before he consulted a fellow player in the NHL who also sports those same digits. Conacher, who wore 89 while with the Senators and Tampa Bay, could’ve continued on with that number in Buffalo, but he chose to go with 88 out of respect for former Sabre...

Just minutes after Ottawa sort of inexplicably lost Cory Conacher on waivers to the Buffalo Sabres, they turn around and make a brilliant move -- acquiring the super-underrated Ales Hemsky from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for a third and fifth-round draft pick. These picks obviously have very little value. Additionally, Edmonton's retaining 50% of the salary in the deal....

Before any of the trade deadline day gets started, the name Cory Conacher has been frequent. He's on waivers, but many believe that the Sabres will grab him.
