Darren Dreger @DarrenDreger
Leafs trade Lombardi to Phx for a conditional pick. Toronto also retains some salary in deal.
Toronto eats Lombardi's $500,000 signing bonus, plus some additional salary.
Toronto gets a 4th for Lombardi. A 3rd if he re-signs in PHX.
Leafs have talked about giving younger players a chance. Can't just say it...have to do it. Moving Lombardi opens up a spot.

Depending on what that pick is, this is a great deal for PHX for a very speedy winger, although Lombardi has suffered a couple of accidents lately.

He needs a change of environment for sure. Toronto's style of play was just not for him. Tippett's style might work though.

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

Pretty good for a centre-starved team. I still feel like Lombardi can regain his former status of being a strong two-way guy who hovers around 50 points as long as he stays healthy. Pretty low-risk for a team like this, IMO

I like the deal for Phoenix, he could really rejuvenate his career their since they need some speed and scoring. If he wasn't as unproven/risky after the injury (with maybe a lesser cap hit) I wouldn't have minded him here as our 3C.


It is interesting though, perhaps the Leafs are offloading some salary for another move.........

Solid deal for Phoenix if the pick is 2nd-3rd or lower.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Maybe Nonis saw Reimer's stellar intrasquad performance and decided he's seen enough.

Weird trade by Toronto.. They need all the scoring forwards they can get..


JvR, Connolly, Kulemin, Grabovski, Bozak, Kessel, Lupul, MacArthur


In my mind, the only scoring threats are Kessel and JvR. Lupul can be a consistent 20 goal scorer but they need more than that and won't make the playoffs with that kind of lineup

Certainly going to be our #1 defensemen. Give him a couple more years to improve his game and he'll be our new and improved version of Matthias Ohlund in no time

I'm just guessing here but I think he means unproven in relation to his contract.

“Reason is itself a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all.” - G.K. Chesterton

“Unbelief is as much of a choice as belief is. What makes it in many ways more appealing is that whereas to believe in something requires some measure of understanding and effort, not to believe doesn't require much of anything at all.” - Frederick Buechner

“All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful.” - Flannery O'Connor


“My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?” - C.S. Lewis

It seems plausible. He had a pretty bad contract, although why would they dump a forward if most likely Bozak is coming back
