Clearly the Leafs feel as if the roster spot is better used by another forward.

He was part of the PK last year on this 29th ranked defensive team. Clearly he isn't going to be any part of any sort of shutdown line in Toronto.

Hopefully at the deadline for conditional first based on playoff performance(at least a second).

I do agree but that will factor into internal budgeting. This is a new tool for teams who feel they deserve something for being a higher earning franchise and also, in a sense, creates a free-market revenue share.

A good idea for the CBA and it allows for GMs on both sides of the fence to solve problems in a mutually beneficial way.

I really think that once GMs figure out the rules we'll be back to trade deadline day specials worth watching.

I hope the Leafs get like 37 draft picks this year by selling off all of the useless garbage on this team.

Lombardi was -19 last year!

He's the kind of player that teams love playing against. You know he's not going to score. He's not going to drive the net. He's not going hit you. If you try to go around him he'll probably get out of the way and shake your hand on the way by.

He did absolutely nothing to make life difficult for opposing teams. Teams like Boston and Philly lick their chops when they see a guy like Lombardi on the ice.

@DarrenDreger: Leafs have talked about giving younger players a chance. Can't just say it...have to do it. Moving Lombardi opens up a spot.
I wonder who slides in there. Or is it just clearing space for McClement/Connolly

We could have added Lou with Lombardi on the roster.

His contract didn't have any baring on whether or not Lou is Toronto bound.

Only caveat with Connolly, he was pretty good on the checking line under Carlyle last year, blocking shots, making smart plays. He can also move up with injuries, so less useless than Lombardi who brought zero to the table apart from "what a great stride".

This. I think he'll definitely bounce back well for Phx, probably thrives in their system and puts up ~40 pts. Such as it is to be a Leaf fan. But it's good to clear cap space (if there happens to be a deal where we acquire a high salary player) and a roster spot

If we can get rid of Connolly I'll be pretty happy. Gives both Naz and Frattin a spot!

Great move to open up a spot for a young player. Surprised they got anything for him.

True. So basically a dump because of the depth. Good news for Kadri perhaps.
