Doesn't make any sense for Buffalo to move him for that kind of return. Better to just gamble on Connolly remaining relatively healthy than trade him for Laich, let alone throw in a 2nd rounder.
That's true. Connolly is, hands down, the better offensive player. Laich brings something the Caps need for as many games as possible, though. Not to mention his cult following, which would totally dissolve if this were done.
