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?
I agree with you on some things and not on others, I think the skill level is similar and it's hard to compare the two in point totals because of their injuries and playing years.
I absolutely agree with you on the other things said about their character, sullen loner crap and not team players, just made up stuff by disgruntled so called anonymous insiders.
The point you made about why did the Sabres keep him so long is a good one and on the money and asks the question why indeed did they keep him so long.
