Traded by the leafs, back to a team he's already played for. Leafs get a conditional pick in the deal. The guy has a lot of speed, but never performed like many thought he would. Will see if Dave Tippett can turn him into something useful.

He was never an integral part of that trade to Toronto, he had a bad injury and some thought he may never come back... Tor got rid of the HORRIBLE Lebda acquisition and got Franson who was a highly rated prospect, that wanted out of Nsh, and cash strapped Nsh got a prospect in Slaney in return and dumped the Lombardi contract that they had to pay real money for while he was injured, while only absorbing the remainder of a mostly paid Lebda contract... This deal was more about money than anything and Lombardi was never in Toronto's plans...
