In a recent Hockey Night in Canada radio interview Lombardi made a passing comment that it looks like Mitchell is coming back. So, we asked him for some clarification on that statement.
“Well it does (look that way) right now,” answered Lombardi. “It’s fair to say that given where he’s at right now, it made us, and the proof’s in what we did, that we believe clearly he’s on the right track. And we did everything around his (salary cap) number. If we didn’t feel that way and I was smoking you, I would have done something to get out of that number.”
