Connolly has done nothing at the NHL level though - his numbers are positively Tedenbyesque - and he has to be on your team. How many clubs are willing to give up a lot for that? It's all about what teams are willing to pay and I don't see a lot of clubs willing to shell out a lot for him. Frankly when we were doing a lot of the analysis on Connolly, the Lightning still had MSL - if Callahan goes, they could find a spot for Connolly if they wanted. Regardless, draft position just doesn't matter a ton at this point.


It's not Connolly's fault that literally every TB forward prospect has crazy skill. Seriously, Palat, Johnson, Kucherov and then Drouin in the wings.

Is no one concerned about what could be our biggest issue in a year (if not this year) - Schneider?

 

Why hasn't he signed yet? Of all the rumors and acticles I've seen that the Devils are "hopeful" to re-sign Schneider to a contract extension is anyone worried that we'll not see it this year and we'll see the same Lou behavior as we have in the past with all of our past top UFAs? If he doesn't sign a deal over the summer I'm going to be very nervous that he won't sign at all. Especally if we miss the playoffs again next year. Would you blame him for leaving? The only thing that would work in our favor is that there aren't a lot of teams in the market for a starting goaltender.

They can't sign Schneider until July 1. That's why.
