Matthew Lombardi's speed (imagine a line with him and Jason Chimera) and two-way game fit perfectly for what the Caps would be looking for at the position. He's a risk because of that concussion, but there's only one year left on his contract and that also means a lower asking price.

Speaking of which, what would Leafs' fans place his value at? I'd expect a 3rd or 4th would do it, or maybe Joel Ward.
i think lambo's going to turn it around this year!!!!,that being said we could use the cap space and thus opening up a spot for 1 of the kids
