Tim Connolly to FLA

What would it take to get him on the Panthers? I know they're both battling for the playoffs but if both clubs could benefit from it, I don't see why not.

Granted I don't know much about him, but a quick look at his stats shows an oft-injured player, why do we need him?

He's a great playmaking center when healthy, but I think he's a UFA.

Maybe a pick, but I would think Buffalo wants a roster player.

Whatever the trade, make sure there is a lot of packing peanuts put around Connolly.

With the situation both teams are in, Connolly isn't going to be going anywhere, especially a playoff competitor. He's too important to the team right now, especially with Vanek out, he gives the team scoring depth and uncanny playmaking ability. He's also great on both the PP and PK.

Now, if someone like JBo were to be offered in the package, then I'd listen. But that would never happen, neither team wants to trade key players off the roster at this time of the year.

Id rather just go after him in the offseason. He is a pretty skilled player, with a good set of hands, he just seems he never is able to put it all together and stay healthy.

He's a PPG player when healthy and could easily put up a 80-90 point season.

If he wasn't a UFA at years end it would take Horton, but since he's a UFA i think you could probably land him for Weiss.

and yes, he's a UFA at years end.

He'd be a consistent point per game player if he ever managed to stay away from the injuries.

That's ridiculous. A 2nd or 3rd round pick would be the best Buffalo could get for Connolly at this point, UFA or not.

Weiss is our future captain IMO, he is basically untouchable...

I can't see the cats giving up more than a pick and maybe someone like Noah Welch for Connolly.

Trade is not going to happen. Sabres will not help the Panthers or vice versa. Look at the standings...

Doubt it would take Horton for a guy with an injury history like Connolly's and it certainly won't take Weiss to get him now. You apparently haven't seen Weiss much this season or what he offers. I'm not belittling Connolly at all, just talking of Weiss' value.

Connolly won't be able to draw a return that would interest the Sabres, due to his injuries. They'll keep him.
