I suspect that the most Toronto would offer up is Komisarek because he's overpaid (especially for the role he's playing), but even that's a real tough sell because of how substantial Vinny's contract is. Komisarek could problably be ditched much easier and for a contract that doesn't last 8 years.
Be real dude.. If Toronto could land Lecavalier for Komisarek & some schmuck prospects & mid picks that be considered a steal. Say what you want about Vinny's contract, but he's still a very good #1 center & would look real niiiice centering Kessel. This is exactly the type of deal Burke should be looking for, unfortunately the way Tampa is playing I highly doubt they trade their captain.
