Phoenix Acquires Matthew Lombardi for a 4th round pick.
We continue the trend of going back to the old days. Lombardi had his best season in Phoenix. He practiced here too and Elliot Friedman pondered if this move would be made a week ago. So here it is. Like the previous deal with Lombardi, this one comes with a question mark, itâs a 4th round pick or a 3rd if he signs with...

Center Matthew Lombardi has been traded back to the Phoenix Coyotes from the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday in exchange for a conditional draft pick. The draft pick could be as high as a 2014 fourth-rounder while the Maple Leafs will retain some of his salary. The deal gives the Coyotes depth at a position where they were lacking -- with a player whom the team knows well. In...
When I look at the Toronto Maple Leafs roster, I not too impressed. Sure you got the likes of Phil Kessel , Dion Phaneuf, Joffrey Lupul, but that where it basically ends. There are no big superstars like Sidney Crosby or Steve Stamkos. In fact, their one top scorer, Mikhail Grabovski, is probably not well known outside the city of Toronto. In this article, I will point...
The Canadian Press Like the surprise in the Cracker Jack box, no one's too sure what you'll get with the Toronto Maple Leafs this season.
Fans just hope it's better than the year before. And the year before that. And the year before that.
But the signs aren't too promising. General manager Brian Burke is gone. Goaltender Roberto Luongo hasn't arrived. And there...

Earlier today I wrote a post about Tim Connolly and his offensive production at even strength. Shortly after posting that I thought a similar article comparing the performances of Bozak, Kadri and Conolly would be an interesting piece since they are sort of competing for roster spots (more so Kadri and Connolly than Bozak though). Of course, in the mean time Connolly

If the Toronto Maple Leafs are to have any success this season, they better work hard and compete.
It sounds like a cliché but it is a point that was repeated often Sunday morning, before the Leafs even hit the ice for the start of training camp.
“We are going to push guys a little harder. It’s going to be an intense camp...
Yesterday evening James Mirtle from the Globe and Mail posted an article on The Curious case of Tim Connolly and the Leafs. It’s worth a read so go read it but the premise of the article is how the narrative around Tim Connolly in training camp is he had a poor year last year and he needs to perform better
Per TSN's Darren Dreger, the Leafs have traded forward Matthew Lombardi to the Phoenix Coyotes for a conditional draft pick. Will update
Per TSN's Darren Dreger tweet from a few minutes ago, the Leafs have decided to place forward Tim Connolly on waivers.
Connolly did not suit up for the Leafs open practice at the ACC this morning.
This is likely the Leafs being proactive, opening up roster spots and using one of their two compliance buyouts, as New York did with defenseman Wade Redden and Montreal did...

"We would upgrade our goaltending by the weekend if...
