Sometimes, voting results makes no sense at all, and proving that Connell finished 7th that year is AST voting is just another way of "proving a number right".
While I'm convinced Connell isn't Top-4 material this round, I'm also convinced he doesn't belong with the bottom-tier group of available goalies (to me, that's a group reserved for Cheevers and Beezer, possibly Thomas). If there's any case I'm trying to make here, it's that one.
