I'd still rather have Lombardi over Lebda anyday. Getting Franson with him was just laughable.

Love this move. Congrats to Lombardi for getting out of Toronto, where he was likely going to end up riding the pine. He gets to try and rejuvenate his career in Phoenix, wish him well.

Now we've turned Lebda into a 3rd likely and Franson... good value.

McKenzie said on the radio, and Burke confirmed.

Schenn
MacArthur

were the two confirmed names that were offered 1st for.

Speculation of other two was Lupul/Grabo/Kulemin

The fact that we were able to get ANYTHING for this guy is a plus. I would have happily put him on waivers.

I agree, it's not groundbreaking but it shows that management is committed to make the most out of every asset it has. Hopefully we continue down this path.

Really? 5mil from a club that made 1 billion dollars makes you cringe?

Lombardi can still play, this is about making a roster spot for Kadri/Frattin. Good move, Lombardi just really didn't fit here, and hopefully he can again in Phoenix.

This trade definitely was to open a spot on the roster, plus it does reduce the cap hit and gives us a draft pick.

Lombardi can play hockey and might excel in Phoenix, good luck to him.

Great trade for the Leafs.

Um?

Do you watch games? He was our best defensive forward.

No, he means the condition that we got from the Lupul deal. We get a 4th if he plays more than 40 games this year.

I would never include Kulemin with LACK.

Hold your concern until he has two bad years; you don't quit on a guy and throw him into a grouping of players who have hit their ceiling and bounced downward; because of one year. The guy can go without scoring at all and still be an asset to this team. He has a lot left in the tank; one bad year is not indicative of his whole career.

They should since it's a very low risk move for them. Lombardi in Phoenix makes sense as well.

Would have done Mac for 1st in a heartbeat. There were some really good mid-late round picks

Teravainen
Subban
Vasilevski
Mikhail Grigorenko/Forsberg (moved up when packaged with our 2nd)

He indifferently got 36 points in 70 games with 3rd line minutes, while playing with some average linemates (Frattin, Crabb, Lombardi, etc). I get it that you hate the guy, but let's keep it real.
