Three players fit into this category...

Horcoff
Hemsky
N. Schultz

So...which do you think was offered for Connolly?
B-But Tambo doesn't try to make deals!

Hopefully Dreger just thought Whitney is signed for another year. That trade I could get behind.
Might have been Ryan Smyth

I was thinking that maybe Dreger meant $3M total left, not per year, so that adds a few more possibilities.

Petry
Smyth
Belanger

Doesn't make sense to trade Belanger to add another center, Smyth I'd buy the plane ticket for and I really really hope Tambo wouldn't even think of trading Petry for Connolly.

Contracts, using it as a way to dump Horc's.

Belanger could make sense if he wants out and you want him out, but I still think you add Connolly and you still need Belanger.

When HEALTHY
Penner RNH Eberle (size with the little guys, but can he skate with them)
Hall Gagner Hemsky (like this line)
Paajarvi Horcoff Yakupov
Smyth Belanger Jones
Ex. Hartikainen (can rotate with MPS and Yak in the lineup) Petrell

What happens to Ben Eager?

Makes sense. Package negative value with even more negative value.

Leafs wouldn't want Horc, Schultz or Hemsky over a guy who isn't currently actually playing on their team? Doesn't make sense.

You never know what these little pieces of info mean because we never hear the full story. It's like the telephone game/Chinese whispers by the time it gets to us peasants and we just fill in stuff to make the info even worse.

Just thinking about those two on our team would make me miss the '10 Oilers.

I like how D.Jones for R.Whitney was a good deal by the first few Avs fans on the main board.

Then again 4 years 4mil a year could be joke on us.

Just thinking out loud, but with the rumor of us going after Connolly and then the main board suggesting Bulin to Toronto. And then Dnicks throwing out Bulin for Connolly and now that Roy is in the ECHL with Bunz. Wonder if we pull the trigger on Bulin for Connolly or Dannis for Connolly or something.

We can't have Roy and Bunz splitting time in the ECHL for too long.

Not sure why you'd post that. He's made it quite clear that he wants to develop players properly.

There are no restrictions with trading guys on IR.

Why the h*ll would we want Connolly? Soft, oft-injured, and not good enough to crack the leafs roster. I'm all for a move at C of any kind.. except for bringing him in.

..unless the Nuge injury is worse than thought, and they have a 1C spot to fill.

I think there is no chance Smyth gets traded. It seemed pretty clear he wanted to retire an Oiler. He would more likely retire than accept a trade.

Don't see how Roy going to the ECHL can mean anything is imminent with goalies.

ECHL= Roy/Bunz
AHL= Hoivonen/Danis
NHL= Dubbie/Khabi

If that's the case he better get on the paperwork.
