I figure Washington may have passed NYR as the most likely destination for Connolly if Regier keeps him in the EC. The only problem is that the Caps don't have their 2nd round pick this season--ironically, it belongs to the Rangers--and that is likely going to be the asking price for Connolly.
Montador is tailor-made for the Hawks, and Chicago has three 2nd's. Monty is cheap, contract-wise, which is something the Hawks will value. I see that as a likely destination for Monty.
As for the other expiring players--Rivet, Nieds, Grier--I would take pretty much anything. I'd trade Nieds and Grier for a 4th or 5th, and would even take "future considerations" for Rivet.
