It's interesting that you bring up Tampa Bay. McKenzie reported that Yzerman was interested, but other than rumor mongers and hacks who merely suggested a possible return, I saw no credible reports that DL was offered Connolly AND a first. You can't use that as a measuring stick.
LA put a lot of time and resources into developing Thomas Hickey. Look how that turned out.
The Kings spent far more money and resources on Johnny B.
Hickey never made it to the NHL. So he never had to be coached by the big club, the Kings also never had to pay his NHL wages.
