Toronto
5th Round Pick

Vancouver
Tim Connolly


- Short term Kesler replacement
- Cost is low (he cleared waivers earlier this year)
- 1 year rental, so his cap is off the books at year end.
- Hes averaged 48 points/season over the last 2 years
- Short season mitigates injury risk.

Yah I think it would be great, I would even say a 4th rounder if they won't take a 5th but not too sure why TO would do this.

Not good enough for the Maple Leafs, but good enough for Vancouver.

Change the team's name to Vancouver Yankees pls.

Hasn't the Team America experiment failed enough as it is?

Last time I checked, we don't have 2/4 of our centers.

So Torontos center depth > Ours atm.

yah but farm teams need players too, I guess I should say I don't see Nonis jumping at helping out the Canucks especially for a pretty insignificant asset return.

I don't like the idea of using a roster spot and significant amount of cap space on a guy who will have a specific, limited and temporary role. Plus we have nabbed players such as Bieksa, Edler and Hansen with mid/late round picks.

EDIT: put another way, would Tim Connolly be a difference maker for the 2012-13 Canucks? I don't think so.

Would a mid-late round pick be a difference maker? For every Bieksa theres 10 Prab Rai's

Is it any different really from bringing in Pahlsson last year?

The way Kadri is going and the way Henrik has dropped off, you could probably reverse the < sign in the next couple seasons.

Its like saying the way kassian is going u can reverse the sign between him and stamkos after the first 7 games of the season.

I think we would have picked him up off waivers if MG wanted him. Kes was injured when Connolly was sent down right? If we didn't grab him then I don't see why we would now?
