disaggree with you on this point. I think it will be real stretch to see Connolly back next year as a 19 in Tampa's organization. His value is not at a peak yet with his injured year off front and foremost in GM's minds...let him put up a point+/game for awhile, toss in a some highlight reel stuff, and a hat trick or two then let the bidding war begin. There will be some teams that will REALLY want a player like him near the trade deadline...he would fetch us some really good young players and/or high draft picks if he plays injury free like we all know he can. On the other hand, if the Coogs can gel early and win often...the butts he would put in the seat might be too much to resist IF he really wants to stay here and lead his home team to respectability and beyond. In either case....GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOGS!!!!!!
BTW is this the bear? beav? or the beav?
