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.
They may or may not covet him that much but it would be what the offer was. As far as McKenzie goes he stated both on twitter and mentioned on air that the offer was a 1st and a top prospect (later it was generally agree to from both side it was connelly) so yeah i can use that as a measuring stick.

As far as hickey goes it makes it even more important la sticks to there guns and get the frist. This team is giving up alot of young talent and not getting it true value ie purcell molson boyle etc
