Darren Dreger is reporting that the Toronto Maple Leafs are completing the paperwork on a deal that will land Tim Connolly for two years. The annual cap hit is 4.75 million.

This seems like a pretty decent deal. If Connolly runs into injury trouble again, it doesn’t hurt the Leafs long term. And as for the money? It’s a little high, but won’t really affect the team as it’s doubtful they’ll be up against the cap in the next year or so.

Solid move. Fills a need while the club waits for Colborne and Kadri (amongst others) to develop. It’s a low risk deal.

Connolly notched 42 points with the Sabres in 68 games played during the 2010-11 season.

Dreger also had this to add;

Connolly had other options. Lots of interest in the last 24 hours. He wants to play in Toronto. Good fit.
