He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 1963–64, 1966–67 and 1969–70 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 1970–71 and 1972–73. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era. He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 1970–71, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.
First thing to remember is Dreger is the Biggest homer on sports radio, he is also wrong a lot. If you've ever listened to that station for whatever reason the lot of them love having cracks at the Leafs. It would be Horcoff for sure. Schultz is actually a top 4 dman on that piss poor group. Haven't listened to Dreger in a while, is that ****** still sucking the hind tit?
Definitely made more sense to let Connolly's final year run out and free up that cap space for the offseason. Oilers would have had to of thrown in a pick/prospect if we were going to eat another year of a contract dump.
Don't see the Leafs trading him for anything other than a pick or prospect. Between Connolly, Mac and one D-man, I can see the Leafs picking up some picks for the upcoming draft. potentially 2 more 2nd round picks.
