Maybe i'm wrong but i really think Carlyle will be ok with having him with the Leafs.
I like the idea of Lombardi on the 4th line(if he's playing on the Leafs) over the 3rd line. Obviously he has wheels which would help of course on any line, but b/c he ABSOLUTELY REFUSES to drive the net I think he's better suited for the 4th.
