NHL Trade Rumors: Will Tim Connolly Be The First Major Trade Out Of Buffalo?
NHL Trade Rumors: Teams Showing Interest In Buffalo's Tim Connolly
Tim Connolly has always been one of those players you wonder what he could be if he stayed healthy for more than the blink of an eye.
He's not a goal scorer, but he's a decent playmaker who would be a nice fit on a good team who needs a second-line center. Apparently that must be the feeling around the league, because some teams are interested in acquiring him.
The Buffalo News reported that the Capitals, Kings and Penguins have all shown interest in acquiring the center from Buffalo. All three teams have holes up front and down the middle that Connolly would address.
The bigger question would be is Connolly worth the investment? He's a nice player, not a great player. And there's that injury history that would scare a lot of teams off. But in the NHL universe around the trade deadline, marginal players become coveted players when word leaks that they're available.
I find it hard to believe that Connolly garnering the most attention out of Buffalo in terms of possible trade assets. But at the same time, listening to an interview with new owner Terry Pegula, he seems dedicated to make the Sabres a better franchise. That includes making trades that he said will help the team in the future.
If that means a Tim Connolly trade will help the team in the future, then so be it. If the Sabres can get a good package for it, they should bite.
