Give your head a shake...
Give your head a shake. No rollbacks. The PA wants no part of them.....again. The Rangers still have Del Zotto to sign. Even if the Rangers are in good financial shape after the CBA,why take on Connolly? A player who is supposed to be insurance in case of injury misses a decent amount of games himself with injuries. The way you describe Connolly,you guys need him more than the Rangers do. Keep him.
