Maybe he will go and try to trade for another franchise like player. Somehow I doubt he will be able to pull it off. He is running out of assets to trade without completely destroying the team for another 7 years.
I dunno...Schenn, a high first rounder,Franson (former first rounder) Kadri, Kulemin, Grabo...all pieces he can parlay into something valuable... and again, when Colborne graduates (I think he usurps Connolly next season personally), the outgoing player he replaces should yield a decent pick. Kaba, Versteeg, Beauchemin are all examples of this process.
