Thats great news! I know of the name, but I don't know much about him, hopefully he will bring some good talent in and help the Flyers out. The Flyers GM Bobby Clarke said that he was very experienced and thought he would be a GM again someday and was happy to have him. Here is a nice stat from nyeff's link:


Lombardi and Bill Torrey are the only general managers in league history to have their team's point total increase for six straight seasons. Lombardi's 2001-02 team captured its first-ever Pacific Division championship.

That's pretty impressive, I hope he brings his winning ways East with him

He will. What is more impressive,is that he did it with a brand new team. Now he is going to a well established team. He will do wonders for your team PA. Give him 2 years,by the second year the Flyers new prostpects should be top notch.
I was blown away when he was let go.
