See that's the problem. I don't think we have a young guy that can replace Connolly's production for this upcoming season.

Not to mention if one of Grabo/Bozak go down, or if Bozak slumps again... who's gonna fill in on the top 6? I guess it'd have to be one of Kadri/Colborne.
Agreed. Unless Burke is bringing in some significant additions that require the salary space, we should just keep Tim for the last year of his contract. Our centre depth sucks. Moving Lombardi is different because we have a surplus of capable wingers.
