That sounds logical, it is sort of what I thought the Leafs plan would be. I just don't know the Leafs very well so I was not sure if they were looking to move Connonlly or not, if he was disgruntled and causing issue being sent down.

Seems like it would take too much of a return for the Rangers to trade for him right now in that case. They just do not have any NHL roster players to give up, nor do they have a 1st for this years draft.
