But not with 3 more years @ $2.75M with a MNTC.

Would rather just let Connolly walk at the end of the (maybe) season.
Bingo.

Connolly walking is a big part of the reason we're going to have the $ to chase a big time free agent (should they not be re-signed by the current clubs).

I like Montador, but I value cap flexibility more than what he would bring as our 6-7 defenseman.

Let's not forget that the Leafs have 1-2 guys who may be ready to step up from the farm this year (Holzer/Ranger/Blacker) and would be held back if Montador was a Leaf.
