The Leafs are paying so much for Connolly because they can afford to. Even if he bombs, it's not like there's a wealth of centres they're missing out on. His contract is only two years and it'll take that long for a true #1 centre to come out of the Leafs development system. Who knows, maybe he'll be healthy from now on. At worst he's a two year stopgap.
