Maple Leafs to buy-out Mike Komisarek.
 
According to Nick Kypreos, the Maple Leafs will use 1 of their 2 compliance buy-outs on Mike Komisarek.

He deserves to go play somewhere, even though he's an average #6/7 defenceman on a mediocre team.

Good guy. I wish him all the best.

Really good guy. Very nice person. Obviously wasnt a very good hockey player for the leafs though....even though i thought that Komi played well early this season yet was benched anyways.

My prediction for where he'll end up is........The carolina hurricanes.

I cant see it myself only 1 year left at 3.5 real pay and 4,5 caphit somebody will bite on him

smitty10 06-19-2013 11:21 PM

I thought this was already public knowledge?

He's too good of a guy to wait for that to happen.

That may take months.

He deserves to pick his next home.

Thank you Ron Wilson for ruining the career of Mike Komisarek. I don't think this guy is nearly half as bad as he's made out to be. Wilson's terrible system exposed him into becoming a pylon

nazembiggs* 06-19-2013 11:26 PM

Stupid move there's no point in buying him out. Let him rot in the ahl.

GordieHoweHatTrick 06-19-2013 11:27 PM

I can't believe Komisarek was bought out.


said no-one,ever

The whole point of buying him out was so he could tryout with another team. He'll probably be the big splash MacT makes this off-season!

He went to the AHL and was a good leader for our young prospects.

He deserves to pick his next team/home.

komi can still play. just not at that contract
best of luck to him. i hope he signs on somewhere and turns things around

CaptainKishimoto 06-19-2013 11:49 PM

He was decent in the games he played in this season, kind of annoyed me that awful defencemen (such as Kostka and O'Byrne) played over him.

SnipeCheeseAllDay 06-19-2013 11:52 PM

Bad move. We should use the buyouts on guys like DiPietro and/or Lecavalier in a trade. Even Liles and Grabovski ahead of Komisarek (unless we can trade them for picks).

fyi "rotting" in the ahl doesnt give a team cap relief any more

so Id say keeping his cap hit but not having him on the riser would be considerably more stupid

Fin9* 06-19-2013 11:53 PM

Komisarek + kostka for neal?????????

Gigantor The Goalie 06-19-2013 11:55 PM

Without Komisarek now how are the Leafs suppose to acquire Stastny?

LeafOfBread 06-19-2013 11:57 PM

He was actually pretty good in the four games he played early in the season. I don't know why he was never re-inserted into the line-up, but whatever, too late for that now. Kind of weird that we're using a buy-out when he only has a year left, but I guess it's a nice gesture towards a guy who's been nothing but all class.

Ron Wilson was absolutely the worst coach in the league for him to play under, and it's pretty much sidelined his career. Hopefully he can get back on his feet with another team.

Mats Zuccarelli 06-19-2013 11:59 PM

I wouldn't mind bringing him back home to NY as the Rangers 6th or 7th defenseman

Fin9* 06-20-2013 12:01 AM

Komisarek to Philadelphia for Tye Mcginn

Face Of Bear 06-20-2013 12:21 AM

Komisarek is a good guy, and I never thought he was as bad as Wilson/Carlyle seem to think he is. What the Leafs need right now is a solid stay at home minute-eating defenseman to play with Phaneuf, and its a shame that we are buying out Komi when he was supposed to be capable of that.

ShortSideFlick 06-20-2013 12:27 AM

I like the guy. I really do. But with 1 year left, it'd be a stupid move to buy him out. This is a team that has the financial might to leverage a trade out of a buyout. There's also potential to actually need these buyouts next season if a few guys don't pick up their play next season. Guys with more than a year remaining...

If we could mutually agree to release Komisarek that'd be great, but these buyouts are assets and you only get two of them. I really don't bear any ill will on the guy, but come on, his contract was over $17 000 000 and he was mediocre for us at the best of times. I'm not gonna feel sorry for him if he has to endure another year of collecting millions more for doing nothing before he can have his pick of the teams that will take him.

Seriously people, if you maintained the same lifestlye you have now, you could probably retire off what he's going to make for doing nothing this year. nothing. Nice guy, but he's being WELL compensated for waiting a year.

Rando Strange 06-20-2013 02:04 AM

I can't even pretend to know his game as I never see him play. He seems like a solid guy. In that I hope that TML does buy him out to see if he can actually hang in the NHL. TML went through a phase of wickedly overpaying for stay at home defenseman only to bury them with the Marlies.

Ziggy Stardust 06-20-2013 02:06 AM

They're buying out an All-Star defenseman? (before anyone jumps on me, I am being sarcastic).

Carolinas Identity 06-20-2013 02:07 AM

Welcome to Carolina Mike. Seems like a JR kind of guy and if he'll sign for around 2m I'd love him here.

Prairie Habs 06-20-2013 04:31 AM

I wouldn't mind seeing Montreal bring him back for the bottom pairing at around 1.5M. We are short on RD and with Emelin out we could stand to add another physical D. I really doubt that we do it though after we have extended Boullion and Drewiske for the 7-8 roles (6-7 without Emelin).
