Komi needs to work on his transition game to be a truly effective top-pairing D-man, but he's good enough that the Habs might have to overpay for him. If they don't, they absolutely need a solid plan B because then they need to find someone else who can play top-pairing minutes on the right side and not get schooled by Ovechkin and his ilk.
Komisarek's skill set is overrated. He is an old NHL defenseman and not a new age one.
One thing is for sure, the Red Wings would have never re-upped Jiri Fischer for that kind of a cap hit had he not had heart problems and needed to retire.
We need to start managing our roster and cap space like the Wings if we are to have a chance in hell of ever being close to the organization they are.
