No offense, but I really don't think you know much about that prospect.

I really have no idea how good Connolly is because I have not followed him closely. I do think that downgrading Strome as a prospect because he was not playing on the Island as a weedy 19 yo is ridiculous though. As an Islander fan, I hope the days of kids getting rushed are over.
I'd say Connolly is just as hard to acquire as Strome but we have more wing depth then you so we'd be more open if the right trade came along.

I really don't know whether Connolly is a reasonable Buffalo trade target either. They have no chance at Strome though.
I haven't followed Strome like you haven't followed Connolly but just by looking at junior numbers he seems more playmaker then goal scorer.
I'm not downgrading him because he hasn't made it to the NHL but everyone wants to downgrade Connolly for not putting up numbers as a 19 in the NHL, we then decided to put him in the A to develop and he's all of a sudden a bust.
