I'm not convinced that Connolly is going to be with the Lightning next year. For that matter, I'm not sure that Brown will be there either. So I think an opening is there for Conacher or Killorn.
There is absolutely no way that you win a bidding war for Brown and as part of the offer to Brown was to let the remainder of the 2011-12 season count for the first of a two-year ELC -- and then you send him him to AHL for the only season you have to evaluate him before you have to re-sign.
There's no way Brown isn't on the NHL roster.
