would this even be a stretch?
Those of you who believe that he is the next captain and wouldnt dare leave are fools. He will be in the prime of his career and will be going into free agency on jul 1.
Someone will pony up close to 6 or over 6 mil a year for him. If guys like Finger and Commodore got HUGE contracts for their less than stellar seasons and careers, imagine what komi will pick up if he goes to july 1st.
And his agent knows it. The fact that Gainey didnt offer an extension to whom everyone believes is the next captain is proof that either Gainey is planning on going in a whole new direction or his head is in the sand. Gainey has made a huge mistake waiting so long to re-sign him. He will either lose him for nothing or will have to shell up a huge overpayment to keep him here.
And if we dont re-sign Komi it will leave a huge void on D and in the lockeroom. And just to be clear, the replacement likely will not come from FA because as well all know by now nobody is knocking down doors to come play here.
its funny how some of you are saying let him walk, as if we have his replacement waiting in the wings.
I forget how many prime d-men we have at 6`5 and 240 pounds who can get physical with the best of them and be a leader on the ice.
When we are desperately searching for grit, we would let one of the few who shows character walk.
This is not Kmoi or his agents doing, they are doing what is best for him. This is clearly gainey`s doing for his ridiculous negotiation tactics and failure to identify the core of the team.
