He has his moments but they are too few and far away for his paycheck.

Fellow leaf fans this was a bad signing. Let's face it. He was brought in to play 1st line minutes and he can't even handle them. You all know I'm right, you guys just don't want to admit it.
And I'd much rather win games.... Connolly helps us do that a lot more than Joe Colborne.

The only reason Connolly hasn't been playing top line minutes is because it hasn't made a substantial difference as to whether they play with Bozak or Connolly, and whereas Connolly tends to produce more when not playing with those 2.
