Komi's rage is a liability, when he plays calm and controlled like he did last time he played the Habs, he is effective. when he doesn't he is out of position trying to make hits, taking dumb pemalties, wasting a lot of energy in scrums and face washing, basically running around looking like an *******

OB is already calm and controlled and more confident with the puck, once he smooths out his skating and learns how to join the rush he'll be a very good d-man with similar strengths but much more upside.
