According to Leaf fans Connolly was #2

Hate the congrats. Let's wait until Richards shows that he can mesh on this team before people are patting each other on the back.

Congradulations on getting Brad Richards, we backed out because we signed Ville Leino who was the # 2 best Center on the UFA list

have a good season (we all hate Pittsburgh LOL)
Thanks. Love the Leino signing , nice to see an owner spending some cash for the Sabre faithful.

he will play C in buffalo, has played centre his whole life until he got to detroit because they had Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Flippula down the middle while the flyers had richards, carter, giroux, briere ect. This might be the best move buffalo made

WATCH YOUR MOUTH. Dont take the Lords name in vain there, guy. And there is no need to be a jerk.

The OP was being very nice and cordial and congratulated us on getting the top free agent everyone and their mother wanted.

So it was a very nice thing to do. Being a fan of the GAME and not just a TEAM.

To the OP. Thank you very much and for being respectable.

I wish Buffalo nothing but the absolute SECOND BEST lol (I have to keep my boys one step ahead of your guys lol!). But in all seriousness, Buffalo got MUCH BETTER this offseason and you should be happy Pegula is spending like no tomorrow!

Good luck in the upcoming season and I look forward to playing you.

I always liked Buffalo. But the sting of being knocked out in the second round a few years back has never gotten easier to handle lol

he says he is a natural centre and prefers to play it. played it up until his first season with DET/PHI both teams he has played for were stacked at centre so he was converted to wing. he will likely play between vanek and pominville
