I would imagine the Jacket's wouldn't be willing to give up too much more, considering Klesla is a great D-man and would likely resign, whereas Connolly might end up just being a rental because his contract would likely be too big for Columbus to resign. That's why I say at most they could add a 4th round draft pick because Columbus has two of them after Adam Foote resigned at Colorado
Only way Connolly is moved is if he wants more than 3.5 mil per year. It was reported we offered his agent a contract extension last week. Based on his inability to stay healthy, I would guess that if he wanted more than 3.5 per year for 2 years.... that we wouldn't be too interested in keeping him.
