That puts you in a tough spot with Komisarek Kovy Koivu Tanguay, your defense suddenly eats up half your cap if you don't let Komi walk.
I don't see gainey making that trade.
I believe Mike Komisarek just lowered his value/worth with his play this year and the fact that he MIGHT not be as tough as we thought.
Markov is signed for awhile
Gorges is a bargain
Hammer is signed for a respectable price for 2 more years
Boullion is solid but possibly high for 1.9$ but not far off.
Komo should not get 6-7 mill in my opinion. If he was a THE BEAST we all thought he was or was going to become, he would stand up for his teammates more often. But, unfortunetly, not everyone can hold his own with the NHL heavyweights, but Komo was very weak in all or most of his fights in his career. So far, nobody should be afraid of Komo anymore.....
I love the guy, but, I'm just not afraid of him. minus at least 1 mil$ in his next contract.
I know you will all say that some other GM WILL give him that extra Mil$ so we better pay.....you might be right, I just wanted to point it out.
