I'd say so. If he plays 70+ games a season for the next 2 years, it's not bad, but it's hard to see that happening.

Good for Connolly. Just another overpriced deal, so nothing new there.

Not a fan of this deal, at all. Tim Connolly is hardly a difference maker, and more often than not injured. 4.5 million? I guess the good part, two years. Hmm..

Next winter will also be good if there isn't any snowfall in the North East.

Why am I not surprised a concussion-prone guy who misses like 70 games every other year got $4.5 million a year?

I feel for Buffalo management, because you know they've been bent over by the mass exodus of players in the past few years. From their perspective, how can you let another player slide for nothing?

They had to overpay, and Connolly & co knew it.

Gross. Not only is Connolly not worth that deal because of his injuries he hasn't even scored over 60 pts in his entire career. He has never been a ppg player.

This is crap. He can't stay healthy, but when he plays he is the definition of "difference maker" for the Sabres.

They could have traded him.
