Very true. And in a few minutes, we'll see if we're getting another reclamation project.
Connolly does carry the pre-requisite of higher cap hit than salary and he DOES help us get above the floor (in case Visnovsky doesn't show up, we'll be close to the floor though not a huge concern)
There's always a chance Connolly could be a good addition, as was true with Schremp, Grabner, Aucoin and many many others....but the Leafs picked right after the NYI in last year's draft. They aren't a good team, they desperately need a centre, they put Connolly on waivers, they don't have cap/salary issues, they chose Bozak, McClement, Steckel and maybe Kadri over Connolly.....so let's not start the parade just yet.
All that said, Connolly is a much better choice for THIS YEAR than Strome or Nelson or Sundstrom.
