I'd have liked to see the team take Fowler over both of them. And if they had been sticking to a forward, I'd have liked to see the Isles take Granlund over both of them.

This said, no matter if Connolly works out for Tampa or not, when a kid has his hip problems at that age, you don't take him over comparably talented teenagers that early in the draft. You just don't take that risk. And lets face it, he hadn't done jack to show he was going to necessarily be better than Johansen, Niederreiter, Granlund or Skinner.
