    Must be some sort of cap dump coming back to FLA. Connolly is awful and Stillman is a bottom pairing guy at best, with not much upside beyond that -- tho I have liked his game at times.

    I imagine its Murphy / De Haan or Zadorov coming back. FLA clearly in the need for an Ekblad Replacement (we know no one will actually replace him, but you know what I mean)

    P.S. the names at the top of this post do not buy any of these guys, so they are clearly the throw in pieces, not the main piece

    Connolly is decent but extremely overpaid with another year left. Stillman is young but has sucked. I am interested to see what Florida is getting back, if it's anything more than a depth player it's bad for Chicago.

    Wasn't Connolly waived recently?

    Yes, very common for waived players to be dealt

    Can’t see them moving Zadorov for that return at all

    Yeah, that's why I'm surprised at this. You would think Florida is sending a pick for Connolly's contract, or maybe that was the price for Chicago to take a flyer on Stillman. If Florida traded either of these for Zadorov or De Haan Chicago got fleeced, but I doubt it. Very interetsed to see the return.

    Wouldn’t FLA want a right shot D, so Murphy?

    Would require something expensive for the hawks to move him

    Oh, I know. I just don't know how decent Connolly is. Haven't followed his career since he was in Washington.

    True, but why would FLA replace Ekblad with a left shot guy?

    Weegar is a natural right handed D; he’s been excellent since we’ve switched sides. Right now a LD that we can play next to Ek next season would be super valuable

    It wont be just Connolly and Stillman.


    Actually, I think this trade has the potential to be pretty large and significant. Connolly is an expensive cap dump IMO. 3.5M cap hit for another two years for a guy providing almost no value.


    He's the kind of cap dump that might even cost a 1st to move.


    It wouldn't surprise me if there's a 1st + Fairly decent prospect going to Chicago here for a UFA like Janmark or maybe Zadorov going the other way.

    Coming in late in realizing Riley Stillman is Cory Stillman's son
    Looks like his younger brother Chase is due to be drafted this year too.

    Getting a pick to take on Brett Connolly is a good move for Chicago.

    He can also be flipped later when he's about to hit UFA. So they should be able to cash in on him twice. You need turnover like that when you're trying to re-tool.

    yep, knee jerk response, here, is often "but he coulda been gotten for free..."

    however, these considerations often also apply
    - a guy who has cleared waivers can be assigned to taxi squad or AHL
    - with flat cap, teams much prefer some salary going out when some new salary comes in ...

    Probably a cap deal for FLA to make a subsequent trade, if a roster player was coming back you'd think Lebrun would've gotten a whiff of it.
