Darth's comments (if he ever made them) aren't that far off, considering Connolly does have great hands.
The best "hands" I ever saw on a hockey player were Mike Bossy's. The second best were Tim Kerr's. But, Connolly was one of the best playmakers I ever saw as an 18-YO. His development just got screwed up by the Isles system. And, I think the same can be said for Pyatt. Buffalo has done a better job with young players than the Isles and both should have a chance up there.
Man, do I ever miss Oleg Kvasha. If Oleg was here, everything would be OK.
