Lombardi telling GMs Brown is NOT available

Trade deadline craziness: Lombardi telling inquiring GMs that Dustin Brown is not available. Can't wait until this is over.

IF LAK are no longer considering trading Dustin Brown, as @FriedgeHNIC tweeted, I can most certainly assure you they were. #TradeCentre #tsn

Lombardi should have confirmed Brown's trade status with MacKenzie prior to making those statements.

Lombardi may have to back track later.

If it could happen to Gretzky it could happen to Brown. Becoming coach of the Coyotes that is. .

A trade like they just pulled usually comes in 1's, not 2's or 3's. But we'll see.

How terrible is Lombardi right now? First throw the captain under the bus and only after he gets run over about 3 times pull him out from underneath. Absolutely brutal GM, no wonder no one wants to get traded out there.

Not upset that brown isnt available anymore, just upset that someone could honestly treat their teams captain like that. This guy is an all heart warrior.

I say this with the assumption brown was made available to see what kinds of offers would be put up. Obviously Mckenzie is the bonehead if the player was never actually available. However i doubt thats the case, considering the entire hockey world was talking about it.

Dreger, Lebrun, and BMac all seemed pretty confident he was indeed being shopped.

So this is really strange.

Don't be discouraged Edmonton fans. Start five more threads trying to trade MPS for him.

God forbid McKenzie reports what he hears.

If you expect everything he tweets to be 100% accurate in terms of predicting what'll happen, you're silly.

Lombardi is such a clown. How long did SJ have to wait until they dumped his ass? It'll be one hell of a party the day this guy gets tossed.

At any rate, if LA were to deal Brown, now is not the time.

Actually have to agree with this. Offseason would make the most sense with letting the rest of this year play out as it may.

I'll take Bobby Mac's word as gospel.

No way Lombardi admits to anything while his team has vital points up for grabs before the actual deadline.

If Deano has a leak in his organ-i-zay-tion, he needs to fix his internal problems. Conducting Damage Control is pointless when the entire hockey world knows what he said is a stall tactic.

Lombardi is likely trying to draw out the fishermen, that's all.
