Tim Connolly Signs Two Year Extension

TSN is reporting that Connolly has signed a two-year $9 million extension.

Here is how I feel about that.  Connolly is a great player if he can stay healthy.  Right now, he is staying healthy as well.  Connolly is a player that the Sabres need because he is the playmaker that the Sabres need.  But there is the inherient issue with the contract because he hasn't shown the propensity to stay healthy. 

This now means that the Sabres are probably going to stay put because their largest trade bait has been extended.  No team is going to be crazy enough to take on a contract that big with his injury history.
