This has to be one of the most obvious trades ever. People calling this since May.

Toronto could have gotten a third round pick. Phoenix wins this trade by a landslide.

Well, I'm not sure that's the 2nd center the Yotes were looking for...

I thought the same. I liked Lombardi, he just didn't fit here. Good luck in Phoenix. IMO, they should have retained 50% of the salary for a better pick

EDIT - It's a 3rd rounder if he re-signs in Phoenix.

What could Nonis be freeing cap space for?

If Lombardi re-signs with Phoenix they get a 3rd, which most likely he will.

We had plenty of cap space. He's clearing a roster spot.

Let's hope we can draft another Frattin with that pick

Not if he doesn't re-sign. Hence the conditional pick...

I like that TO is covering the signing bonus which is likely not pro-rated. Phoenix, I suppose is on the hook for only 48 games worth of his 3.5m salary, this season. I suppose it's actually 48 games worth of 3.0m given the signing bonus' subtraction. Something like $1,756,097.56, right? Also, Dreger stated TO would cover "additional salary", as well.

Pretty low risk move for Phoenix, I'd say.

We already have lots of cap space. This is just opening a roster spot. Our 2nd and 3rd lines were too crowded.

What? If they could've gotten a 3rd rounder without the condition, don't you think they would have?

We are glad to have him back in Phoenix. He played very well for us a few seasons back.

It's essentially a 3rd round pick for Lombardi and cash.

He will sign with Phoenix when the summer hits.

Good luck Lombo.

Good trade. Obvious trade.

I think this finally leaves a roster spot for Frattin or Kadri to take. He should do a lot better in Phoenix IMO.

Good luck to Lambo.

Because the trade is dependent on Lombardi signing, does this mean we are talking about 2014 picks?

Good luck though never had a problem with him.
If I were a Toronto fan I wouldn't feel too bad if he did. Phoenix is kind of like the island of misfit players, they always get a lot out of seemingly average guys.

This is what I like about the CBA. You can pay for picks

I'll take it. Lombardi was very redundant here and it opens up cap space + a roster spot.

I agreed with him on that. Klesla was a perfect fit because of the Leafs need for a 2nd pairing shutdown D and an overload of good defenseman in Pheonix. The Yotes needed a center and the Leafs had an extra. Obviously you throw a fair + on there and trade made.

But, the Leafs needed to open up a spot either way. As far as pick value was concerned I had him going for a 3rd. A conditional 4th that turns into a 3rd if the Yotes re-sign him is pretty damn close.

Can't really complain about this one from either side.

I think he'll do great there. I wouldn't be one bit bitter either if he turns into 20 goal scorer as two different markets and media/fan attention when some players come here.

I hope Connolly/Mac is next!
