This season was unquestionably the most disappointing of Conor Casey's career. The big guy clearly still has the talent that made him Colorado's leading all-time goal scorer, but after coming back from a torn Achilles tendon, the tank seemed empty most of the time.
According to Chris Bianchi, his season is going to finish the way it began -- off the roster. Casey is going to be shut down for the rest of the season, just as Matt Pickens was earlier.

Casey will finish the season with a disappointing two goals in eighteen appearances, a far cry from his return last year that saw him net six goals in six games before the Achilles injury sidelined him for a year. His status on the team will surely be a big part of the off season as the Rapids decide whether to keep or let go their $400,000 man for another season as he tries to recreate the dominance he showed from 2009-2011.
