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?
Connolly played before the lockout in the deadpuck era and players like him couldn't succeed in those times. He was a decent contributor but couldn't achieve his potential without the rule changes. If Kessel played during that time or any of the 2003 kids, they would struggle as well.
