Topping it off, Connolly and Matt are similar types, undersized playmakers.

They rely on college a lot because they have been trading away picks. Picks are needed to stock both AHL and NHL. If a team shortchanges themselves, they have to go undrafted or UFA to compensate just to fill their AHL roster.
San Jose has more than two guys scouting colleges...
