Hannan might have had more rep going back to his Team Canada years, but it was also clear that he had plateaued (or worse). Komisarek doesn't have the rep (yet), but he is also perceived to have some untapped upside still. But comparables might not work. He might be a trend-setter. I'm hoping he takes a hometown discount the way guys like Volchenkov and Regehr did, instead. (Although of course it's far too much to ask that it be of quite the same magnitude as Volchenkov's).
