I understand that he may have not fit well in Ruff's system but he looks really good with Kessel and Lupul so far. Was he that much of a bum in Buffalo all those years?
Absolutely Leino. He's going to break into the system eventually. Connolly was in the system for years and just kind of stopped trying.
