I personally think we are lucky to have gotten rid of Lombardi, even at the cost of losing Franson. This is how I look at it: We traded a 1st, 3rd (conditional), and Franson for upgrading a concussed Lombardi to Fisher. A little steep but worth it IMO. (This may not be the best analysis now that I look at it )
That's beyond steep, actually.
