Fair enough man. I really would love any draft pick for him

.. I can see Calgary trading for him, they've got injuries down the middle and are desperately trying to make a push for the playoffs

TC for Calgary's 2nd rounder and I'm laughing .. A third would be good .. I'd take a 4th and not complain

if he gets picked up on re entry waivers the leafs are on the hook for half his salary which wouldn't really matter to you guys. unless that was changed in the new cba

IMO the leafs won't get anything in return. It's likely a call saying if you call him up we"ll pluck him off of waivers for you. It's simply a "we can say you 2 million if you want" If teams have called that means he would be taken off of waivers.

FTR : Under the new CBA recallable waivers as previous has been removed and does no longer exist.

Yeah Grabo can play D but he is not a play maker, Bozak is more of one. Not too hard to grasp really. Hope you find your marbles soon.

I agree, but right now I think that this is an adjustment period for Grabo. Once he gets rolling he'll be an excelent shut-down guy as well as someon that will burn you on offense.

What makes Bozak such a good play-maker? Do you actually watch him play? 90% of the time he makes an obvious pass to Kessel that is also very bad. He doesn't create anything for his line, if he was such a good play-maker then Kessel would have more than 3 goals. Not to hard to grasp really.

Then following your logic Bozak was an exceptional playmaker last year, with a lower ppg to boot!

I don't think he is an amazing play-maker, but nor do I think he is terrible. But I do think we are a worse team without him in our line-up.

Ya I like Bozie but he really isnt a good playmaker at all. Hes a hard worker and meshes witha great sniper in kessel. Getting assists playing with Kessel doesnt cancel outside his stone hands, imo.

Calgary logic tells us it could be a 1st though. So you never know.....


I think that if you get anything in return, you need help at the AHL level for the rest of the season. I don't think its fair to rob Eakins of every player that he has and then say, good luck to you. He has done a marvelous job with what he has, but in return of Connolly, I would ask for a guy like Krys Kolanos and a pick. He's doing a decent enough job at the AHL level and he's a UFA at seasons end.

I don't think you can alter a trade based on whether a player retires or not...

Which time, on which team and which injury are you talking about.

People knock guys on there team that have a pattern of injuries, but Tim Connolly has probably spent as much time injured as he has healthy in his career, its a rare quality to become a millionaire these days from being unable to preform the job you are hired to do.

In many ways, I tip my cap to Tim Connolly for being able to trick enough people into thinking he is an actual hockey player. On the other hand, I continue to feel my blood boil at the sound of his name.

There's nothing more I hate than a lazy hockey player because of how many people get passed up on this league that have dedicated their lives to playing and will never even sniff the pros.

A million bucks says he gets traded at the deadline for the eventual Cup winners.

It's the Leafs way.

With all the Timmy C. fans...you have to honestly think of it this way: Timmy C. wasen't good enough for a rebuilding hockey franchise that needs leadership and doesn't even have a top six centre (Grabs is not a top 6 centre in my opinion..neither is bozak) ... the role was his for the taking. Burke signed him with hopes that he'd be a 2 year filler as our number one centre between kessel and lupul...and he failed miserably.

Two coaches did not trust Timmy enough with a top six role. Wilson had him playing bottom line minutes and Carlyle sent him to the minors. If we get more than a 4th round draft pick for Timmy we should all be jumping for joy.....

He's not terrible and would probably be better on a different line, but he does make very obvious passes to Kessel and he creates almost nothing for his line, to try and pass him off as being a much better play-maker than Grabo is ridiculous.
