2) Lombardi is currently better than Gomez and would be a better fill in if Desharnais, Eller or Plekanec get hurt.

3) Lombardi is UFA at the end of this season.

We lose a player at one position and gain a better player at that position while simultaneously taking on an overpaid player who has the same term as Gomez but with far less cap hit and actually addresses an organizational need.

How in the **** does this deal "not help"? You make it sound as if we have one of the top defensive units in the NHL.
Lombardi's contract ends in 2013.
