Our forwards are still mediocre and our goaltending is unproven.

Our blueline is 7 deep. If a couple defenseman go down, who would you want to play big minutes? Komisarek or Lashoff? Try to not think about cap hit before answering that.

Unless Komisarek can be moved for a forward upgrade, or his movement allows another significant add to the forward group, then there is really no sense in moving him. What free agents are left that we can't sign, but would be able to if we didn't have Komisarek?

Hold onto him for a year, or until the trade deadline. His actual salary drops quite a bit, so he might be a more desirable asset at that point. Especially, if he plays well. If he plays so poorly that he ruins any fragment of value that still remains, Jeff Finger is off the books and I hear the Marlies are interested.
