Id argue every team can really only support one of those type of players. Till Connollys contract is up he's ours.

why does lombardi kill the deal? oilers have tons of cap space and could use a quality forward for one year.

wouldnt want it as a leaf fan. rather keep blacker and lombardi

Let's just all agree on Lombardi for Hemsky.

They would probably rather NOT have Lombardi in the deal.

I'd suggest Holzer and a 2nd/3rd.
i like this one pretty good for both leafs could use him for sure he would help are scoring slump

What's Fransons value? I liked his play the last few times they met the Oil.

**** no. Jesse blacker I think will be in the NHL next season and pull a jake gardiner and impress everyone. Kid is going to be good.

No interest in Hemsky too

Maybe for Aulie?
Blacker is a better prospect than Aulie IMO. I'm really high on this kid and have been watching him since his Owen sound days

If I was looking to offer a cap dump, it'd be Connolly or Komisarek.

The man isn't even overpaid - $3.5m is a decent price for a former 53-point scorer.

Granted, 13 points in 41 games this season isn't a great scoring pace, but Lombardi is a fairly low-risk gamble.




Giving a young team playoff experience for the future has a value of its own. Changing expectations and giving the franchise its first playoff berth in half a decade has a value of its own. As long as the assets are considered expendable, I think this is close to the type of trade Burke would make.




Completely agree, but given the fact the Leafs have Gardiner, Schenn, Phaneuf, Liles, Gunnarsson, and Franson all as part of their future, Blacker seems to be blocked at the moment. I love Blacker's game, but if he doesn't slot into the future, he's somewhat expendable.
I'd trade franson before him for sure. He better get the same opportunity that gardiner got in pre season. I'm sure he will make good on it.
