Tim Connolly not on the ice for Leafs practice, likely to be waived per Darren Dreger's twitter. Wow. Leafs going young and Timmy out of work.

With this being his contract year, it's not an amnesty buyout...they seriously thinking of assigning him to the Marlies?

Have to think someone will put in a claim. I could see Phoenix to add another center, maybe Florida...maybe the Sabres (please no).

What kind of centers do they have without him? They seem to have worse depth than we did at the position.

I think their hope is that he is claimed.

I would pay anyone $100 if they can get over on one of the Buffalo media that Darcy claimed Connolly off waivers, or acquired him for something like a conditional 7th.

He must be in terrible shape. This makes no sense for Leafs. They have a better centre option. Who?

I have to believe that even Darcy sees the folly in claiming Tim Connolly. Please let him see the folly....

So many teams need a center, so i am sure someone will be willing to take the risk. If not, the marlies have a new center.

Bozak and Grabovski are better.
They have McClement and Steckel, who may not have the offensive talent of Connolly, but fit the team better.

This also potentially opens up a spot for Kadri in the middle.
I don't like him much, but at least it's more opportunity.

I think some leafs fans are speculating that it's a move to clear as much cap space as possible for an incoming player. All speculation and hearsay, but an interesting thought.

I understand the move for what JFB said. Plus they want to start shifting the core to the younger guys as well. They probably are making another deal or two before the season as well.

Sidenote. Tim Connolly and I had the same high school math teacher.....

It's an uneducated thought.

If they did an accelerated compliance buyout on Connolly, they still have to carry his full cap hit for the balance of this season. It saves them no money, and clears no space.

If he is claimed by another team though, then that clears up the space.

You're right a buyout makes no sense. But waivers does, and if he clears they can still save 900K by sending him to the Marlies.

I know you can't bury cap in the AHL anymore, but what if someone claims him? I have always been a little fuzzy on the rules for that (are both teams are responsible for portions of the salary?) and I am not sure if the new CBA has altered that process. Does that still count against the cap?

It's not like they are against the cap or anything....Perhaps he refused to waive his NTC?
