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?
It's long been suspected that both Connolly and Taylor Pyatt were given a lot more slack than many due to being Regier's supposed "big return" back when he had to deal Mike Peca. Darcy has been known to hold onto "his guys" for a long, long time.

On the other hand, there was open cheering by some in the locker room when he signed his extension two years ago.
