Just watched it.. DM seems really high on Lombardi. He is talking like he knows a lot more than we do. I trust him.

Apparently Matt loved his time here. And DM said it is an "oasis" for Matt when comparing to Toronto

Yeah, well. In short I think Doan could do well with anyone really. Vermette was our only offensive center. Boedker was on a mission.

Maybe if old Lombo comes back, him with Doan wouldn't be bad. Vermette can possibly do the same on a similar line. If all else fails, Vermette can stick where he is and Lombardi will be the floater. Either way, I love the options we have now.

49 contracts and a full roster. Management needs to see how everyone responds during the start of the season before moving anybody. Something in a trade may happen about the time Torres comes back. Don't see any one being moved before then.
They're saving their money for when they acquire Iginla!

It makes sense, I mean Lombardi seemed like a fairly quiet guy, I just can't imagine him dealing with the circus that is Toronto. I think health is really the only concern with this deal, as long as Lombardi stays healthy I have few worries that he won't earn his keep. In fact this trade has Vrbata 2.0 written all over it!

On a side note, I'm starting to see a niche here for Phoenix as the destination for players who just want to enjoy playing the game without the searing spotlight of a traditional market. The nice thing about Phoenix is you still get fans, support and stardom but it's tempered and tends to stay within the sphere of games and events. Here it's very easy for players not to bring their work home with them and I think that can be a selling point. After all not everyone wants a **** ton of attention!

I believe he led the team in ppg his only full season with Phoenix.

well than that makes it an even better addition if he can repeat because phoenix's powerplay needs a lot more help then their penalty kill

1) Watch that Maloney interview. He's as candid as ever
2) GMDM confirmed my suspicion that Lombardi wasn't in great shape last year because he was only cleared to play shortly before the season started
3) Somebody has to make the crowd swoon after Pyatt left.
4) This is a low-risk, moderately high-reward deal. At worst, we get a good PK center who has world-class speed, is good at faceoffs, and is a great locker room fit. The alternative is that we get something resembling the 09-10 Lombardi who had a 50 point season and was money in the playoffs. I'm fine with either. I can't even wipe my ass with a 4th round pick.

This makes our awesome PK even better. It never hurts to have options.

5) Best dressed GM in the league?

It's hard not to get pumped after listening to the interview. I didn't know he was training with Doan and company so we had inside info on his conditioning and health. Also, I didn't know his injury was a neck problems and NOT a concussion. Obviously a neck injury isn't good but players have been disappearing after concussions the last several years so I feel better about his chances of staying healthy, especially with the league cracking down on hitting. This could be the typical Maloney under the radar acquisition that turns out to be huge. Now if we can just get the Canadians to let him cross the border!

With Lombo back, does this mean Gomez is out? I sure hope not!

Yep, we've come a looooong way from a destination for players to play golf and end their careers peacefully playing for an easy-going, half-committed coach who had no idea what he was doing.

Not a home run, but a safe deal. He's a quality third line centre, will give more offensively than Gordon would in that spot, and fits our template. GMDM continues to get quality return for minimal risk.

Thanks for posting that. I may have missed someone posting it on here, but I didn't realize that it wasn't a concussion, after all. I'm very happy to hear that.

Meh, well Moss and Lombardi are familiar and 18 isn't really Moss' number anyhow, maybe the two of them can work that out. He's worn 25 before in Calgary and for Team USA.

Apparently Gomez is signing with Chicago, can't call it a huge loss for us.

Tim Connolly has now been waived. I guess it is apparent that we had a choice of the two and decided we like Lombardi better. I guess it makes sense. If Don really has that inside track and was able to dismiss that neck injury with confidence, it makes a whole lot of sense to grab the guy you already know and already like rather than the unknown player with a history of reoccurring injuries of the same nature over and over again.

After watching that Maloney presser, I don't believe we ever had any interest. Looks like it was Lombardi all the way. All the way back to the summer, actually.

I knew you would have input on Connolly. you have been talking about him since last year. To be honest I'm more comfortable with Lombardi. He fits, we already know that, and he has speed. We now have Vermette, Boedker, Lombardi, and Korpikoski....all of which are amongst the fastest in the league.

I'm with ya. I think its kind of B.S. that now that there is another team in Winnipeg, we still aren't able to let those numbers be used again. Some of the greatest hockey numbers are retired here and will never be available to use again. #7, #9, #10. I realize Tkachuk's number shouldn't be included in my short list, but still..
