Even though Komasarek should not make over 2.5 million. When u start making big mistakes like that u have no idea of cap management and thus your hurting your teams ability to sign other players.
I think he's right on the money, contract wise.
Actual comparable would be Timonen @6.3 cap hit, Dan Boyle @ 6.6, Campbell @7.1 cap hit, Burns @ 5.7 cap hit.

Those aren't 'horrid' contracts, they are fair for what they provide, and so is Phaneufs (Campbell is a little high, though).
