With Tim Connolly, there’s always a but…

‘In Buffalo, the last six seasons, Connolly has been both in and out, up and down, often out of favour. There are all kinds of negative numbers. He has missed 36% of all Sabres games post-lockout — and that coming after he missed the entire 2003-04 season with post concussion syndrome. His personal injury list includes concussions, bone spurs, cracked vertebrae, broken ribs: He has played 302 NHL games, missed 252 with various hurts. And as for his post-season game, he has not scored a goal in his last 29 Stanley Cups games. Despite having what Milbury describes as “ridiculous talent” he has only had two seasons with more than 50 points scored. He has never scored 20 goals in an NHL season despite having “one helluva shot.”’
