Because we are not in the position to trade away a center for a draft pick.

Regier made it clear last week that we would be buyers, not sellers, at the deadline.

I don't know why everybody is so surprised.

And did you really expect five roster players to be moved? Take a look around the league today. Not a ton of movement going on.

Major changes to the roster will have to wait till the summer.

Yup. It's worked so well for them in the past, too.

Who would have taken on TV's contract? And not all moves help. While Darcy has his downsides he isn't stupid enough to move out half the team and make us worse by either getting nothing back or bringing up a bunch of AHLers who aren't ready for the NHL every game.

I'm pretty sure they've been left wondering that many times in the past decade or so.

I wonder if Connolly would play better if he wasn't harped on so much by fans and the media.

Probably. He seems to have the mental toughness of a grade school T-Ball player.

I'm not saying he or other players should get a free pass. Believe me. And maybe there's something to be said for a professional athlete being able to take some criticism. But the Connolly hate here and around town is palpable, and this is a small town. It must suck to play on pins and needles.

UGH...the worst thing I am ever going to write....

By not trading Connolly today, he will be resigned by Darcy.

The worst thing I have ever written.

It's not a situation I would want to be in...

unless I was getting paid millions of dollars to play a game I (supposedly) love.


But seriously - I do see your point, and I'm sure it does suck, and is probably contributing to his lack of performance this year. But tough noogies for Tim, that comes with the territory. When you don't show up for the playoffs, and have been disappointing fans for years, you should put on the mental flak jacket, because you're going to be catching some serious ****.
