it would seem to be a perfect result, if your perception was anything other than one mans delusion
Unless Komisarek brings one of those players in return, then it's not a favor in the short term, and trading away a useful veteran defenceman for nothing doesn't show a lot of confidence in a team who's trying to make the playoffs.
Komisarek is overpaid and has a partial NTC, as a result, the only practical time for him to be dealt is in the offseason, when teams are looking to add long term dollar committments and make trades more substantial than rentals. GM's aren't going to "clamour" for him -- I don't know what I said to make you think that, but they'll most likely be able to find a deal. There's lots of teams who can use a guy like Komisarek.
