Surely someone will pick up Tim Connoly. Sure he's a stretch at 4 mil but this guy can put up 60-70 points on the right team. He's been in Toronto and still scoring 30-40 points which isn't bad considering the muck they're in.

Nick Palmieri and Jason Wright are interesting. Both are big young players that have potential and play to their size.

The price is the issue for Connelly though (along with injuries). A budget team doesn't want to spend that much to get a guy who might not work out or can't play most of the time, and a cap team can't afford to have him out but not on LTI. If he cost less or were more reliable, he'd have takers.

connolly is good if he's healthy and contract is around 2 mil.. way to risky, he is 1 or 2 hits away from retiring..

I still think we should pick up Connolly and Santorelli, if we are comfortable using the Schroeder/Ebbett experiment.

Daniel - Henrik - Burrows
Raymond - Connolly/Santorelli - Kassian
Higgins - Lappierre - Hansen
Pinnizzotto - Manny - Weise

And when Kes comes back imagine having this depth at center:

Henrik
Kesler
Connolly
Lappierre
Malhotra
Santorelli
Schroeder
Ebbett

Would be much better than we currently have, and the great thing about Connolly's terrible contract (Contradicting I know) is that it ends after this season, so we can just let him go either way.

Keith Aucoin had 22 points in 49 games combined in the last 4 years on random lines with the Caps. 5 years ago had 13 points/38 games for the Canes.

The guy was undrafted and is 5'9/187 pounds.

But he's always ripping apart the A no problems.... I always get curious what a guy like him would do with 82 straight games in the NHL with a decent goal scorer... it's always too risky, I understand, but the guy has put up 70+ assists in 65, 70 and 72 games in the AHL.. wish him the best.

I think we should start throwing money at the Sen's Swedish scout. Karlsson, Zibanejad, and Silfverberg - all future all stars.

Mean to post this somewhere else? And weren't they all high draft picks?

One day some of us will look back on the year and look at the chicago, and most of us will realize that it was a small bump in the road to the cup

Pick up Akim Aliu for the 4th line. Upgrade on Weise. 6 foor 4 225 He has a little skill also. Perfect answer for Tootoo when Canucks play the Red Wings.

Slow, basically a slightly better version of Archibald.
