There's this as well...

KWilsonPreds ‏

#Preds acquired a 2013 4th round pick tonight. Matthew Lombardi played in his 60th game, triggering the conditions of last summers trade

I don't know what's in the water up in Toronto, but whatever it is, they need to bottle it and sell it. Apparently it cures concussions..

lol...



sidenote: you would think that with Lombardi's lackluster production, they would've sucked it up and benched him to keep the pick. That pick has to be worth more than benching him for three games.

I thought this was bizarre too. Not to mention they're out of the playoffs. Benching him would help them give up one less pick and maybe fall spots in the standings, making their picks better. Just weird on their part.

I think the conditions were that if he played at least 60 games this year and next we'd get the pick. So benching him the rest of the season wouldn't really do any good, unless they plan on not playing him next year.

You would think so. But then again, the Leafs aren't known for their scintillating forethought.

So was it 60 games combined over two seasons?

Yes, it was over 2 seasons. So it really didn't matter.

Im pretty sure healthy scrtaches would have counted for this deal.

and he had two years to play the total of 60 so it wasnt just another 3 games..

edit:I see this was covered...

I would really like to bring the original thread back up and see all the hyperventilation that ensued when the deal forst went down and then again when lombardi was cleared to play....

doesnt seem like such a bad deal now, does it??

Ah, didn't realize it was over 2 years. So, yeah, they might as well play him out.

Still, it's pretty obvious he wasn't going to be the top line forward we were looking for.

Fisher is definitely an upgrade over Lombardi.

Lombardi was never the issue.

Leafs fans say they wouldn't trade Franson for a 1st now.

Franson could have been a good piece in a deal . And honestly, he'd be better that some of the dmen we are icing right now. But sure, if Lombari was playing 1st line minutes and producing, it would have looked much worse.

IIRC wasn't all the hyperventilating done over Franson being part of the deal?? He of 5 G, 16 A in 55 games played??

Deadly in most rounds.

Looked back on the Lombardi threads for a good laugh....probably the funniest thing was a poster saying he thought Bergfors would have a breakout year(40+) lol

that was the initial hyperventilation... folllowed by massive flagellation once it became clear that lombardi would play, making some folks think we had traded a #1 or 2 center and Franson and a 4th for Lebda and Slaney
