Dean Lombardi Trade History 2006-present

With the draft approaching, I got to thinking about Dean Lombardi's trading habits. I wondered whether there was any pattern to whom he trades with. This chart is the result of that time-wasting endeavor. So far, it doesn't reveal anything we didn't already know, except maybe that a number of the GMs Lombardi deals with are affiliated with USA Hockey.

This is a work-in-progress and will be updated as new trades occur. If anyone sees any connections I have missed -- not to mention trades I might have overlooked -- speak up. The hive mind is smarter than any one of us!

If I'm counting correctly, Lombardi has made trades with 28 GMs and 24 teams. He's made five deals with Brian Burke, three with Darryl Sutter. The six teams he has not traded with (yet) are: Predators, Canadiens, Senators, Devils, Islanders and Penguins.

Fun fact: Lombardi traded away Pavol Demitra, Brent Sopel, Craig Conroy, Mike Cammalleri, Mattias Norstrom, Jason LaBarbera, Ryan Munce, TJ Fast and this year's 1st round pick, and all he got back was:

  • Justin Williams
  • Trevor Lewis
  • Wayne Simmonds
  • Oscar Moller
  • Dustin Penner
  • Nicolas Deslauriers
  • Dwight King
  • Johan Fransson
  • Andrew Campbell
  • Kevin Gravel, and
  • Jean-Francois Berube

A few things:

  • the number with an "r" in it (e.g. ""1r19") indicates the round and overall number of the pick (1r19 means first round, 19th pick over-all) in the year the trade was made.
  • If the trade involves a pick from another year, that is indicated by the year followed by a slash (e.g. 2010/5r139 means the 5th round pick, 139th overall, in the 2010 draft).
  • There is one instance when the trade involves a pick in a draft that hasn't happened yet (trade #41, 2012 draft); since we can't know what exact pick that is, it's referred to as "2112/3rTOR," which means it's Toronto's 3rd round pick in 2012.
  • Every pick acquired by the Kings is followed in parentheses by the name of the player the Kings drafted; unless of course Lombardi subsequently traded away the pick, in which case you will see a number in parentheses instead of a name. This refers to the subsequent trade number (first column) in which Lombardi dealt the acquired pick.
  • If Lombardi traded away a pick he previously acquired via trade, that pick is followed by the number of the original trade in parentheses.
  • The trade numbers are assigned by me, as an aid in organizing the chart. I attempted chronological order.
  • Players names in italics are no longer in the Kings system.
  • The right-most column ("rel") indicates whatever scrap of connection I can come up with, between Lombardi and the GM in question. Maybe you'll help me fill in the blanks. Or maybe there's nothing to put there.
