Trading Connolly, Kotalik and Stafford for Handzus would be nice, though I am a bit reluctant to part with Stafford. Handzus is a pretty good player, good size, good 2 way player. I remember 5 years ago maybe when my friends and I were in a fantasy hockey league and when Turgeon went down I told all my friends to get Handzus as he was moved up to first line center and he was an unknown then. He started producing and his value skyrocketed.
I wouldn't trade Connolly, Kotalik AND Stafford for Handzus, I'd give them 2 of the 3 players, but not ALL 3. Yeah I remember the early years of Handzus' career in St. Louis and Phoenix, you could see the potential he had back then.
