Connolly is still on pace for a 49 point season. His production has tapered off but he can be a dangerous play maker for us at times and he knows whats he doing in his own end. I have a feeling he will be big for us in the playoffs. And all it took was money to acquire him. Not the worst signing ever. Can still be a good one.
Troll or not, this thread isn't entirely inaccurate. I can't remember the last time I saw Connolly make an impact.
When he signed with the Leafs?

Has Tim Connolly disappeared or has he been demoted? Don't notice him on the ice. Is he hurt?
He got injured twice.And Bozak rejoined the first line and produced so there is no reason to tinker with that line (ignoring how they get hemmed into their own zone and give up goals). MKG is looking strong and so the best spot for Connolly is third. And he will remain there until the Kessel line gets cold or another center gets injured.
Next year will be interesting if Colborne is NHL ready. The leafs will have 4 top 3 centers (assuming grabbo is resigned of course) plus lombardi, steckel.
I think Connolly is playing great. He has had a little bad luck - or playing with guys who aren't up to speed with his creativity - always seems like his passes are just out of reach or not quite picked up clean.
