i dont think this happens at all......

oh wait, its JR....reclamation projects are his forte. not that they all work out, but see Jokinen for one example of a good one. not saying thats what Komi could turn into but.....

that being said, the only way i see this happening is if the Canes shed another salary. Pitkanen most likely isnt going anywhere. If we can shed Samsonov's salary (2.8mil real dollars, 2.533 cap hit) that still means we are adding about 2.7mil real dollars to the payroll if we dont she some more salary. And the canes are way more focused on real dollars at this point. If the Canes trade Pitkanen for only prospects and picks, then maybe it makes sense. But that is a SEVERE downgrade on defense, and moving into the playoffs that will not be a good idea. Komi would be the #4 d-man here tops, most likely bottom pairing, making Harrison the #7 d-man if Pitkanen isnt traded. And there is no way JR is dumb enough to give up a 2nd AND a prospect for a bottom pairing d-man.
