Guy did everything for the Leafs last year. Carlyle values him highly, but wants to get him into a specific role, not a jack-of-all-trades.

High likelihood he gets onto the Kulemin-McClement line in a shutdown role.
Connolly did everything for the Leafs last year??! I watched every game and this is the first I'm hearing about this. Sure, he was tried in every role outside of being an enforcer because he wasn't successful anywhere he was tried! How is that a good thing? He was signed to be our top center and didn't do anything to show he can play that role.

Trade him for a pick and cut the losses. I could see him being successful on a team like Nashville or Phoenix, but he doesn't have the drive to play in a market in Toronto. The media rips him all the time, which doesn't help his performance.
