Burke loves Komisarek. Who wants him and his contract anyway? If he weren't overpaid he might be traded, but as is he stays.

The Leafs are not pressed for cap room and can carry his contract this year anyway. If they can trade a more marketable defenceman for a more useful asset, Komisarek would give them more flexibility on the roster and would be handy to have around.

Also, with all the injuries to defencemen you never know when the 8th or 9th guy comes into the lineup. That's about where Komisarek might be after training camp, but he'll probably bide his time and not complain. Anything they get out of him is a bonus, because no one is depending on him for anything other than to collect his pay.
