There is a time to hold onto your pending Free Agents and try and make a playoff run, but this is not it.
Are you really content missing the playoffs for the next 5 years after already being out for the last 8? That is 13 years of watching a failed product and even at the end of it, you may not be any closer to the playoffs. A mid-round pick sounds real nice, but the odds of it turning into a better player than Connolly is... slim to none.

There is a time to hold onto your pending free agents and currently this is one. No games have been played and the Maple Leafs are not yet out of a playoff race. If the Leafs are out of contention at the deadline and want to recieve a premium of picks/prospects then sell off some UFA's.
