Downside is the Isles are going to have another young stud through this draft, and they have money to spend. The can afford to overpay Komisarek, not to mention he's a Long Island kid IIRC. That's tough to match.
I think for him to stay in Montreal he'll have to agree to take a little less, but the Habs will still have to pay around $4.5-5M a year. One other thing that would help would be the Isles losing the lottery, having Tavares go first and then being able to pick Hedman. With Hedman they'd be less likely to go for Komisarek.
I'd say that if I'm Montreal, I'd do everything I could, within reason, to keep Komisarek on the D corps.
But he is a coward turtle
