The cap as it stands at 70m makes it seems like few teams will actually be at the cap due to not many good free agents. As it currently is, I would guess many teams that are normally right up against the cap will have 5m+ cap space, enough room to take Connolly (with 1 year left on his contract so not a big risk) without sending salary the other way, but yes I think they would like to send some our way, just whether it happens or not is yet to be determined, if Connolly is even traded that is.
Definitely, I just don't think he could ever be involved in any trade for a valuable player.

Connolly has even or slightly negative value right now on the market. Certainly there will be the opportunity to move him to a team who may have missed out on some secondary FA pieces and are willing to take a chance on him and the one year left on his contract.

Our centre depth is pretty good right now, good enough that moving Connolly wouldn't even hurt our lineup.
