Being available doesn't mean our hand is forced.
We've been over this, we won't move him until the price is right, and we aren't doing Toronto a favor by sending them a star player, contract or no, for less then market value.
Lupul, Lombardi and Colborne is much better for value then I have seen surrendered, but Lombardi+Colborne isn't a huge improvement on Lupul alone in terms of value.
I'm not saying a first is the only starter from Toronto, not by any stretch, but if we're taking a cap dump in Lombardi, I'd rather have a top six (on this team) D back as the sweetener instead of futures.
We've agreed on a base again. Kudos gentlemen.
