I think Darcy probably did shop Connolly, but the offers were low (3rd or less), and with Roy being an unknown quantity at this point, he probably hedged his bets and figures he'll know more about Roy as we get closer to July 1, and can make a decision on Connolly then.

I hate to see the guy still in a Sabres sweater, but I can at least see the reasoning behind it, if the return really was that low. Hell, if Boyes only got a 2nd, TC was probably not even worth a 3rd.
