Kind of shocking in all of this Nash trade talk that we have not heard Bobby Ryan mentioned since he is up for a new deal after next season . He would be a big piece as Dagoon44 mentioned . Just throwing it out there ......
I wouldn't. Connolly's career IMO has been very underwhelming. TB would have to give up a bit more for Girardi.
I agree with this 100%. Just because the kid was a 6th overall pick... people would give up anything for him. Im sure these same people would have done the same with Benoit Pouliot... As a former top pick he is sure lighting up the league with Montr... Nevermind. What about Gilbert Brule. Another 6th OV that sure is the rock and cornerstone of Columb... Wait. Nevermind on that one as well.
The obsession of other teams top picks is really hard to fathom. Not to mention, isn't Connolly the one who had his hand basically reconstructed?
