Then we play for the 1st overall pick in 2013 draft.

Great news for the Leafs. Wonder if Vancouver will claim him to fill in for Kesler. Feeling really happy for Kadri right now. Let's hope he takes full advantage.

I think Komi will get a chance to prove he can work in Carlyle's sytem. We are short on physical defensive d-men.

Most teams would struggle if they lose their top 2 players.

Connolly wouldn't have replaced either even if he was still here. He couldn't even outplay Tyler Bozak last year.

Let's just be happy that the play of the younger players is finally being recognized, not just the contract of a player.

Pretty much doing what Burke always said he was going to do but didn't. Carlyle was probably looking at Nonis and saying, "where the hell am I going to play these guys?"
I think Burke's approach didn't pass muster in Toronto.

Team needs offense from the top 3 lines, and I think they can get it when you consider Kadri and Frattin could make up 2/3 of the third line.

this pretty much confirms Bozak will not be traded and Leafs are no longer in on Luongo.

Hope the waivers rumor is true. Very frustrating player to watch.

Colborne and Ashton aren't to far off either
they can and should be close to the top of injury call ups
not to mention Ziggy

For all you know Burke would have done the same thing.

I think it could look something like this. For once there's actually some grit in that lineup.

Lupul...............Bozak..............Kessel
JVR...............Grabovski........Kulemin
MacArthur......McClement.......Brown
Komarov.........Steckel...........Orr

Connolly only seems to perform in contract years and this is one of them, right? I mean, he was absolutely useless last season and by no means deserves a spot over younger talent, but there's a chance he actually tries this year and we might be missing out on it.

Oh well, good riddance to one of the laziest players in recent memory to don the blue and white. I'd rather have Lombardi over Connolly any day.

Wish TSN would update their twitter.

This is the last tweet I see:

Tim Connolly not on the ice at Leafs practice. It's expected Connolly will be placed on waivers. More opportunity for players in system.

I'd honestly rather give chance to any of our younger guys..perhaps Holzer.

The Lombardi trade was possible because Burke lobbied hard about salary retention in the new CBA. He has an indirect contribution here for sure.

Not sure why people try to trash on Burke supporters whenever they can.

With that said, I am loving Nonis so far.

Nonis is tossing out the garbage his buddy Burkey left behind.

finally some logically moves by the leafs. Connelly and Lombardi were not going to put us over the edge, we need to develop our youth and draft quality players.

Lombardi and Connolly gone and Kadri still doesn't make the line up
people would lose their ****, would almost be worth it

I'm assuming Orr isn't playing unless its against Bruins or something and he and Brown sub in out depending on match up
