Connoly still sucks pretty bad and to say he will be this amazing
player in his prime is insane unless you know something we all don't.
All we can say is that he has decent skills and speed from what we've
seen....NOT READ..lets face it, he's not a piece of paper anymore,
and I'm sick and tired of hearing he's our future when all we've seen
is spurts that lead to droughts and a big-ass mopy face. Even if he
has these crazy-mad skills, if he spends one more year skating half-
assed around the rink and he's offsides like 1/2 the time as well,
what good is he ? You have a motivating coach like Goring that
instills desire in these young guys and thats what he gets our of
Connoly ???? Zero Heart. There's a time you have to 86 the scouting
report and recognize what your head and eyes are showing you.
ANY of you watch Edmonton play hockey?? Is there one player on that
bench that wouldn't stand in front of a bus to win a playoff game...
or a regular season game against the Lightning for that matter ?
Yea, Connoly has better skills than 2/3 that team, but you think he'd
be worthy of collecting towels during the Stars series ?
He needs to go to OZ and find out why the hell he decided on
pursuing hockey in the first place and if he can't find the fire,
