Even if Toronto doesn't give VC any salary back in a Luongo trade, Burke will still have up to $2 million+ in cap space after the season starts. Cap space for the upcoming season (assuming the current CBA is in place or the new NHL offer), and overpaid players on 1 year deals are not a problem at this point.
We just don't need Connolly whatsoever. Let alone his contract for just 1 year. We are in win now mode, so "1 year left on his deal" means a lot more to us than it does for you guys.
