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.
