One change to Leaf lines at practice: Steckel flips to 3rd line centre with Lombardi and Frattin. Crabb drops to 4th with Dupuis and Brown.

Not sure the is the big change we need but whatever...

Re-arranging chairs on the Titanic. Bottom 6 is a scoring vacuum.

Earlier in this thread we were talking about UFAs.

This is a fantasy/rankings look at the best of the crop so far (not that I think fantasy/ranking stats are the greatest ..)

Connolly is #30 (lol  ;D)

Ignoring hindsight to some degree, it's not like there's a ton of them that fit the "that's the one that got away" profile

Yup, and most fit that "wow this guy is actually panning out?" or "how did THAT guy suddenly get good?" profile... ie: Smith, Ryder, Theodore, Elliot, Wellwood....

Aside from Columbus' GM, who said "$33 mil for James Wisniewski? Great deal!!" ?

Of course everyone knew Brian Elliott was an awesome stopper and folks fell out of their chairs trying to grab Souray off waivers!!  :)

Aside from Kopecky whom I like, I was intrigued with taking a flier on Fleischmann, but his heart condition scared me a lot worse than Connolly's just being injury prone-ish.

Maybe the X-Ray was positive?

Let's hope all the doors and windows are closed at the arena. Wouldn't want the draft to injure him.

Is there any way possible that Connolly doesn't become the new whipping boy this year?

Yeah, he plays.

And yet Colby isn't the whipping boy. No offense, but this is a pretty ludicrous double standard.

I think the difference between Army and Connolly is with Army, there wasn't a long list of injury concerns with him when we signed him.

That's a fair point.

The other part that's a little over the top to me is some of the venom with the criticism from a few folks (not necessarily on this site). Connolly gets paid a fair amount and seems to get hurt a lot. Beyond expressing disappointment, etc, a few  fans really seem to almost hate the guy for it when he gets hurt - a pretty nasty tone.

I don't know if I'll ever completely understand that reaction.

Sarge

I hated the transaction but that doesn't mean I hate him... I mean to hate the guy? Yeah, it seems pretty ridiculous.
