In all seriousness, based on this and other posts, I'm not sure sports are really your thing (or in your best interest). Developing tendencies like this can't be healthy over the long haul.

THANK YOU! I have not posted on here about it because I know that it seems everyone on BP loves Connolly and would flame the crap out of me, but he is not good! I know he is young and I really do hope he develops into a great player, but I don't see the skill, work ethic, or potential in him. When he get's scoring chances, he can never finish on them... Not a good player at all.

Go ahead and flame away, I understand he has potential but I don't understand how everyone can continue to support him and say he is coming along.

I'm fine with Connolly. Personally wished we had taken Skinner but if not for his injury Connolly would be battling with Hall and Seguin for number one. He reminds me of Panik in that when he wants to be he looks amazing but his consistency is terrible.

Over on HFB(yes, yes I know) most Tampa fans seem content with Connolly and Detroit's 1st for Schneider, I'd be fine with this but personally I'd rather use that pick on Vasilevski(highly doubt he's there when we pick in the 2nd).

Thank you but I knew going forth with the post would ruffle some feathers but this is a "Forum" to express opinions. I now how 99% of Lightning fans have a hard on for this guy. I have bit my tongue all season long. After 81 of 82 games being played this season, this guy has no business playing in the NHL. I just pray to God, the Bolts can package him, along with Detroit's first round pick to get Schneider. If a person can't express an opinion here, this site should be shut down. Last time I checked...... oh wait I see where it says "BoltPospects Community Forums" up in the left hand corner of this reply page on my computer. I am sorry I thought a "Forum" was a place to voice opinions. My mistake, this is where a fan goes to sugarcoat what went wrong in a game/ season. Sorry to offend anyone.

There's nothing wrong with doubting Connolly's talent or thinking the Lightning should've taken someone else in the draft, having a full blown meltdown and saying you're going to hate him until you die is psychotic and pathetic.

Thank you Dr. Matt, I look forward in reading your articles in the American Journal of Psychiatry. I am sure you have a wealth of knowledge to share. Much appreciated and have a good day.

I feel ya, man. I've held my tongue for so long because I know how everyone on here loves him so much. I just don't see it.

Thank you too Zo. Your expertise is invaluable and is appreciated. You have a great day as well, kind sir ( I hope you are a sir or I will be wiping egg from my face)

Is this thread still about the game in TOR where Stamkos hit 60--I mean 59?

Speaking of which, thanks go out to Tom Pyatt from his fans here at the BP Forum for making the last game of the season not be totally meaningless: If he tries really hard, he can unselfishly rescue a teammate, Nate Thompson, from having the worst +/- among all forwards and 2nd worst on the whole team. Even if he doesn't manage that feat, at least we'll have all summer to relish his dream season, reaching that Historic Milestone of a dozen goals in a single season.

Oh yeah, and Stamkos might yet hit 60 after all. Go Bolts!

It also invites flaming when people would otherwise just ignore the post.

Yes, because GDTs never, ever get dragged OT.
