He's had a very unlucky streak of injuries.

I wish he could stay healthy but more importantly when he is supposedly healthy enough to play I want to see him play significantly better. The Leafs only miss the guy due to a lack of alternatives who play a physical game.

Colby who? With this team playing so great, there is no room for Army once he is healthy...I am sure he would be great on the Marlies - second line duty

I don't think he's played bad. The cycle/possession game is significantly better with him in the lineup. He can actually play the wall.

He started off very slow this year before his injury, but that could be said for a few of our players (heck, even approaching 20 games in we can say that about them).

I can forgive the Reimer incident only because dealing and surveying concussions is not an easy task.
And in the case of Connolly, there was a crack in the bone that didn't show up on the early scans.

Agreed. It actually surprises how well he can control and protect the puck. He's not fast but when the puck is on his stick, he gets pretty shifty too, an odd skating style IMO.

He's good on the PK and considering our PK, we could certainly use him, brings an edge and can occasionally chip in with a goal. Certainly an upgrade over Lombardi on the 3rd line.

Its the number! Gotta change his number when he comes back. He said he would in the offseason so as to change his misfortunes but he never did.

We've really missed him and I hope he comes back soon. He's a very good forechecker and I'm a big fan of his game.
