A hockey man who knows that he may someday cross paths with Tim Connolly or his agent or one of his friends and knows it's best to not put his name next to candid opinions about the player.
I doubt the Leafs' brass don't know exactly what they got when they signed Connolly. I think it's fair to say that his numbers don't match his talent but his talent is exactly what the Leafs needed to add this off-season. Even performing at the level he performed in his more uninspiring seasons with the Sabres will help the Leafs who are shallow at center.
I wanted to comment on one of the statements in the article where someone talks about everyone in Connolly's family being high achievers implying that Tim Connolly isn't. Tim Connolly is one the best couple 100 hockey players in the world. Since when is that not "high achieving"? Is his family made up of Barrack Obama, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Oprah Winfrey and Mother Teresa?
