So is it 'illegal' for anyone to suggest to the governor their preference for an appointment to fill a vacating seat? Or just illegal to make a 'deal' over it?

Well of course it isn't illegal to discuss who will fill a seat, and yeah pay for play deals are punishable in a court of law.  Somewhere between the two is where we are, and so there are efforts being made to find out where that point was and who was operating in the shadows.  Of course, when the Democrats are in these scandals, finding out the technicalities is what the media wants to do so they can excuse the misdeeds or limit the damage. 
If this were a Republican governor and incoming Administration, all that would matter is that there was any connection whatsoever, and they would be sounding the national alarm on a daily basis.  Experts and historians and statisticians would appear on talk shows concerned with what this means for all of us, the state of our nation, the integrity of the office, foreign affairs, accountability, etc.  Someone might point out we don't know the facts and that there isn't any evidence, only to have that discarded since the connection is troubling and that we're starting to see 'a pattern'.

I don't suppose we'll ever know the 'truth' anyway, we rarely ever do, lol.
I have a tendency to agree with your assessment, sadly so. Having been on both sides of the coin as it were, a few times in fact (lol), it seems to me that when a Rep is being hounded for perceived wrongdoing, Reps in general don't seem to have much of a defensive voice; but when a Dem is being hounded for the same, their overly-defensive vitriol could be heard on Saturn. But that could just be the coverage it gets, not the reality --- but when I think about blogs and comments and posts that I read (from the eithers and the ors), it sure sounds right to me. I have theories as to why, but their just theories, lol.
And yeah, to answer the primary question, I'm sure he will, short of some video footage (or audio) yet to be discovered, lol.
