He did the same with Souray,Streit and others,if you consider a player important to you're team going forward,then lock him up and stop waiting cause you are gonna end up losing them all

Savard wanted to stay in Boston,he said it earlier this year,GM got on the phone and made sure he got a deal deal cause he knows come June,it's too late and the player will test the FA for the most money possible.

Problem is (IMO anyways) I'm not so sure Gainey knows in what direction he is going
you should know that Komi didnt want to stay. He had already made up his mind. The habs saw him as a future captain and didnt expect him to leave at all. But he did (for a variety of reasons, probably none that you're thinking though). The guy didnt give a damn about the team anymore. Now it would of been nice for the brass to know this in advance instead of it being a big surprise but what you gonna do.

anyways, trading a pending UFA like Komi wouldnt of fetched us all that much, and you know it. The guy was beyond horrible last season and the only team that was interested in his service at his price tag was the Leafs (dont forget that Komi was also known as the biggest ass kisser in the locker room and was pretty much hated by the whole team save for 2 guys).
