Those numbers are huge for a guy like Komisarek. Deals like Markov's are discounts for players like Markov; deals like Markov's are overpayments for players like Komisarek.
He doesn't log any power-play time, he doesn't pitch in offensively. In comparison to the numbers and contracts thrown around last season for
d-men, Komisarek should be in the ball-park of 4.5-5.0 million -- especially if it's a long-term deal.
I do think Komisarek is a valuable member of the team, but if he's asking for Markov-type money, I'd let him walk; he in no way justified it, and given the only real bad defensive d-man contract that stands out is Commodore's, Komisarek will have a hard time pushing for 5+ million.
