Connolly has done nothing at the NHL level though - his numbers are positively Tedenbyesque - and he has to be on your team. How many clubs are willing to give up a lot for that? It's all about what teams are willing to pay and I don't see a lot of clubs willing to shell out a lot for him. Frankly when we were doing a lot of the analysis on Connolly, the Lightning still had MSL - if Callahan goes, they could find a spot for Connolly if they wanted. Regardless, draft position just doesn't matter a ton at this point.
It's not Connolly's fault that literally every TB forward prospect has crazy skill. Seriously, Palat, Johnson, Kucherov and then Drouin in the wings.
