BRIAN BURKE HAS MOVED BRETT LEBDA AND ROBERT SLANEY FOR CODY FRANSON AND MATTHEW LOMBARDI.
BRETT LEBDA. TRADED. FOR WARM BODIES. WHO CAN PLAY HOCKEY. WHO'S A BAD GM NOW?
Excuse me. I'm excited. Brett Lebda is obviously terrible and the last time I saw Robert Slaney it was to tell him we decided to go with a different alternate player for Tuesday night pick up. Nashville gave up Matthew Lombardi who seems like a 50pt guy but missed all of last season with a concussion and has two years left at $3.5M per.
It's likely Lombardi won't play for Toronto and will instead occupy our LTIR and free up money on Nashville's budget. The price for this deal? Cody Franson. Cody Franson is a 23 year old defender who put up 29 points last year with the Predators and will be an RFA next summer.
