Kadri and Hodgson are fairly comparable. However it's not exactly like AV was in love with Cody's playing style. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if Gillis and AV both prefer Colborne to Kadri, considering Gillis's year-end comments about preojected roster changes.

No, but that doesn't mean they would be assets we should be targeting.

Perhaps. I'm not totally against the idea of acquiring Connolly in a deal, but only if he's valued as a cap dump, and it's not detracting from the collective value we would otherwise return. If that was the case I would prefer the zero-to-negative valued Lombardi.

Also, I think your valuation here might be a little pessimistic. If Connolly is the best roster player coming back to us in the deal then I think TML's 1st would also have to be coming back in that deal.
