If you're trading us a defenceman better than him or goaltender, then yes... we probably would.

To get rid of him? not a chance. Komisarek will get the year to try and earn his $4.25m, and the Leafs will make a buyout decision in the summer.

Honestly... probably not.

Nonis may have made a really savvy call, refusing to retain salary in order to get something out of Connolly. Remember, there's no more re-entry waivers, he can be called up at any time without risk, and with Colborne stinking it up in the AHL, he'll be Toronto's #1 callup at centre. They could be in a position to get more for him at the deadline when teams are more injured than they are now, and don't have as many issues related to cap/budget space; as well as having some veteran insurance at centre.
