As for Gomez...i think he would've been a good fit, but I'm honestly more comfortable with with Lombardi.

I do get the logic of 'the devil we know'. I'm 99% confident he'll fit in and contribute. Gomez was more of a wildcard, but a higher potential for 50+ points.

We could probably still have him. We'd have to make a choice, though, between he and Torres. And then find a taker for Torres. And then convince Gomez to sign for Torres money.

Doan-Vermette-Boedker
Gomez-Hanzal-Vrbata
Sullivan-Lombardi-Korpikoski
Chipchura-Gordon-Moss
Johnson
Bissonnette

Works for me.

Fastest number in Coyotes franchise history. Teemu Selanne, Danny Briere, Geoff Sanderson, Scottie Upshall, and now Matt Lombardi.

I like how Maloney subtly does some advertising for Rundblad during the interview. Indicates to me they don'twant to use Gormley to acquire offensive help, but would rather use Rundblad. Hopefully, the additional exposure resulting from the phone call from Lombardi...catches the ear of another organization and they fall for Rundblad's enticing offensive tools.

i heard that Lombo was down here skating this summer with the boys. if thats true then GMDM and DT wouldve had a good long look and made the decision easier for them. IDWT.

Maloney talked about that in the press conference. Doan also spoke about it to the media after the scrimmage. He was staying with Doan and skating with all the other NHLers in Phoenix getting into shape.

In this shortened season this trade allows for Lombardi to slide in and not miss a beat. He knows most of the players, has established chemistry with Doan, and understands the defensive schema that Tippett loves to implement. Add on how motivated he is along with it being a contract year. The only question wasn't if we were going to acquire or really when. it was how much of the contract can we get the leafs to pay.

We all know that Rundblad was acquired because he was the best asset being offered for Turris. I think there is some truth that the plan was all along to give him the development time and then flip him for something that better suites this franchise. I strongly maintain that you can't fit both Yandle and Rundblad on this roster for a prolonged period.

Gormely is similar to OEL in terms of strength of overall game (all 3 zones). Tippett and co. have a greater affinity for players that can play under any circumstances and let's face it Tippett likes mistake free hockey. Gormely is a player who learns quickly. He's never gotten a lot of love on the main boards but Gormely is legitimately a Top 5 D prospect in the entire NHL. He ranked as #2 last year behind Hamilton and I would argue that he bypassed Hamilton after the strength of his Memorial Cup last spring (should have been the MVP of the tournament).

I'm amazed at how well we can predict this teams' moves as a group. For years we were begging for Vermy and we get him. Then Lombo goes to TO and doesn't do well and everyone pretty much figured we would be bringing him back here for next to nothing.

I think RT even called the round of the draft pick we would be sending.

RT is Don Maloney. It's obvious.

Don't forget that he called Vrbata back for David Hale and Todd Fedoruk.

Mercilessly. I can't express how angry I was that we signed him instead of Vokoun. I hated the Smith signing and was convinced it would be a huge failure.

The Fedoruk and Hale thing, I'm pretty sure I got the idea elsewhere and was credited with it, but I can't really remember.

As far as wanting Sullivan and Lombardi and getting them, well a lot of us fit that category. I also called for a million other things. Throw enough **** at a wall and eventually some of it will stick. Doesn't make you an expert **** thrower, just an incredibly busy one.

How fast they sign a free agent on day-1 means they targeted that player .: Smith last season and Moss this season.

Is it my imagination or did that monkey's head get a little bigger?

RT does have a pulse on the trade market. I too thought Vokoun would have been the better choice...especially after the season opener....glad I was wrong.

I was on the Vokoun wagon as well. Not like we were wrong, though. GMDM called him first but didn't like the price.

Redden picked up by blues. I'd assume Gomez should sign quickly!
