Dreger on Team 1260 in Edmonton (Connolly)

Darren Dreger on 1260 today when talking about the Leafs/Reimer/Khabibulin...

He said that the Oilers did make an offer for Tim Connolly, but the Leafs didn't like what was offered. It was a player with more than three million dollars on it and another year left at least.

Three players fit into this category...

Horcoff
Hemsky
N. Schultz

So...which do you think was offered for Connolly?

You'd have to think it was Horcoff

Horcoff or Schultz. Definitely not Hemsky.

Probably Horcoff. Wouldn't you like to get rid of that deal?

Schultz is 2nd. pairing defender for the Oilers.

First thing to remember is Dreger is the Biggest homer on sports radio, he is also wrong a lot. If you've ever listened to that station for whatever reason the lot of them love having cracks at the Leafs. It would be Horcoff for sure. Schultz is actually a top 4 dman on that piss poor group. Haven't listened to Dreger in a while, is that ****** still sucking the hind tit?

That should come with at least 3rd attached.
Besides, if Connolly can establish that he is back in form he could be worth as much as 2nd at trade deadline.

Probably Horcoff.

Not a bad player but his contract makes him look pretty bad.

For sure Horcoff. 5.5 cap hit for 2 more years. Connolly walks after this season. To take on Horcoff Id want Edmontons 1st round pick

How Horcoff ever got 5.5 m is beyond me. Guy is a brick layer. Stone hands.

Definitely made more sense to let Connolly's final year run out and free up that cap space for the offseason. Oilers would have had to of thrown in a pick/prospect if we were going to eat another year of a contract dump.

I don't know. We could use someone for Marlies. They must be running thin right now. But with low caphit ofcourse.

Given how Komisarek played for us in this season, if I am Oilers, I'd definitely do this trade.

Leafs should just give up Connolly for a conditional pick, say a 5th rounder if a team fails to make the playoffs or a 4th if they do. Also, pro-rate the pick based on the number of games he plays.

He's not doing anything on this club in the future, didn't do a lot last year, and isn't exactly doing a bang-up job with the Marlies. IIRC he still gets paid the most of his contract.

Nor is he a threat against the Leafs if he's in a completely different conference.

In short, he's pretty much done as an NHLer.

I don't think it would make much of a difference either way. Nonis would likely just use one of the amnesty buy-outs on Horcoff instead of Komisarek in the offseason.

Don't see the Leafs trading him for anything other than a pick or prospect. Between Connolly, Mac and one D-man, I can see the Leafs picking up some picks for the upcoming draft. potentially 2 more 2nd round picks.
