What happened to Tim Connolly?
 
Is it possible he's not even worth 700k?

He came into camp after the lockout in terrible shape. Even reporters talked about if he made the team, it would be not because of his play and that one reporter said "he skated like he was wearing a suit underneath his equipment".

He didn't really perform well in the AHL and with the cap coming down, its been extremely hard to get a contract - he didn't sign a PTO this season and here we are.

I don't think its strictly about the money. Seems to me that he might be the classic case of a top-six player who isn't good enough to play in anyone's top-six.

What a shame.

He went to Toronto where players go to die.

dubplatepressure 09-29-2013 04:46 PM

I snagged him playing 2nd line center on my men's league team

Djp 09-29-2013 04:49 PM

Did he even get a veteran try out with a team?

Understand he has a concussion risk...but at a bare minimum he would be a good asset for a team if a team wants to go with 3 offensive lines.

tsujimoto74 09-29-2013 04:59 PM

Too many concussions, not enough mics.

natemm 09-29-2013 05:19 PM

League minimum salary crept far beyond his output.

Timbo Slice 09-29-2013 05:22 PM

Injuries, very soft play, and the fact that he didn't really fill a defined role on a team.

Ricky Bobby 09-29-2013 05:28 PM

As a concerned citizen if someone sees him let us know. He hasn't showed up for years now!

Yea, As oppose to Colorado where players like Selanne, Kariya, Hannan and Smyth go to flourish.



Oh wait...

Don't forget Smyth!

AlowlyMcOilersfan 09-29-2013 06:08 PM

I would consider him for league minimum.

Yep, where players like Phil Kessel, Joffrey Lupul, Mats Sundin, Gary Roberts, Curtis Joseph, Ed Belfour, Dion Phaneuf, James van Riemsdyk, Cody Franson, Alexander Mogilny and...

Oh wait, they all flourished here. My mistake.

Don't forget Gigučre, he may well retire after this season.

Connolly was such an odd signing for Burke. Burke didn't even invite him to the Team USA camp.

Connelly and many others went to Toronto to make millions when signed to asinine contracts, get fat and out of shape, then Die, FIFY.

Why would you? Guy was benched in the AHL during the playoffs for lack of effort. Not sure why youd want to go...

I saw him yesterday on YouTube in a Sasquatch video. Guy had potential but just totally injury prone. Too much of a risk.

Paris in Flames 09-30-2013 10:28 AM

He and Jeff Finger are chilling out somewhere I'm sure.

Bobs your uncle 09-30-2013 02:08 PM

I thought I saw his photograph on a carton of milk about 2 months ago.
