which is exactly why the Isles Wouldnt want him

you know Jfried, if you really believe what you are saying, Why not trade either Schenn or Phaneuf, who actually have value for something the Leafs need and then Komisarek will actually have a position on your team and youd have a net improvement

There may be upside in acquiring a player like that and hoping he rediscovers his game, but whatever upside there is, is far outweighed by the likelihood that a player in that position will continue to suck and put the acquiring team in the very position you are trying to get out of

Why would any team willingly risk putting themselves in the position you so graphically describe? you might take that risk for a former superstar, who has hit hard times, but for a player like Komisarek?????? even at his best he wasnt all that good
