This is circular logic.

The first comment was "no GM" would ever trade for a concussed player in regards to JVR. To which I pointed out Lombardi was acquired by the leafs.

Someone else chimed in that Lombardi was the price it took to get buy Franson.

To which I pointed out that Lebda could be waived to the AHL and the team could have 3.5M of cap space (and now what turns out to be a conditional 4th rd pick) to acquire another defender if we need to in place of acquiring a concussed player.

So back to the original comment it appears that GM do trade for concussed players when they are trying to get rid of mistakes they made.
