Komi will be easily replaced (for better or for worse) by Franson. This will give us a good look at him with few games under his belt.
Lombardi? those who sympathize with him because he missed a year due to injury and wait for him to come around. I seen this movie before with Eric Lindros and Jason Allison.
For a third liner he's way over paid, too soft, no intensity, too small. Next Please. Trade a mid rounder for a temporary 3rd liner. Call up Calgary, their entire team is full of 3rd liners.
True, they are not major losses if you just look at numbers and stats.
But if you think of the actual make-up of the team they will have an impact. PK which is awful, likely just got worse with these two injuries. None of our Dmen are particularly strong on the PK, but now one of Liles, Gardiner, and Franson will have to play major PK minutes. We're also down to our 5th or 6th best options up front on the PK with Armstrong, and Grabovski already being out.
