Ah, the "Komisarek for $5M" argument.
Well, lets look at it this way:
1. How many teams have enough cap room to fit Komisarek for $5M?
2. Out of those teams, how many need a defensive presence like Komisarek?
3. Out of those teams, how many are in Montreal's Conference? Division?
4. Out of those teams, which would be vying for a Stanley Cup next year?
Factor those in, then ask yourself, "Is it worse the loss if we can get him for $5M and long term?"
Besides, look at Gainey's negotiations with Koivu, Kovalev, Kostitsyn and Markov. Gainey knows how to get value out of players.
