Connolly was pretty bad in his last season with Buffalo, I was shocked to see Burke sign him and then to say he signed him to be the top line center just blew my mind. The Leafs tried to sign Brad Richards and when they didn't Burke thought that Connolly was the best remaining center and signed him.

The good new for the Leafs is that Richards signed with New York instead of them.

I can only guess that anyone wondering why no team has given him a contract either didn't watch very closely or is not a very good judge of a player's performance. He was terrible in his last 3 seasons.
