Well by this logic, than I suppose we might as well trade Miller, Myers, and everyone else on the team for "assets". It's ridiculous when people make the argument that one player is hurting or helping a team exponentially. Hockey is more a team game than any other major sport. I highly doubt Connolly is keeping this team from winning a cup.

I say keep him. You're not going to find many forwards with his numbers available at the deadline. At least we know with Timmy what we are getting: Excellent PK, playoff experience, solid playmaker, weak on the puck, and crappy on the draws. That's better than reaching for someone just because he isnt Connolly.
