One thing I know for sure is I don't buy into these sullen loner junk. Media makes this crap up about players they don't like. When a guy gets traded multiple times, that does make me wonder. If Connolly is such a jerk and so hated why did the Sabres keep him so long?
Pretty much, the media just spins things to make money, theres nothing new in that business.
He is what he is, a highly skilled player who struggles to stay healthy. Not a superstar, just a guy who is capable of playing in the top 6 and putting up points on a relatively regular basis.
