30 year old 3rd pairing defensive defenseman who has been -9, -8, and -15 the last three years and has a $4.5 cap hit.. What do you think his value is? Maybe you can get Lebda back if you add a 2nd.
Right now he is -- but the guy is still well capable of rebounding to be a #4 shutdown dman if the Leafs change to a more defensive philosophy like it seems they will do. Wideman/Carle have never been much more than #3 defencemen, and with a long term deal of course comes a risk discount.

Calgary and Tampa Bay certainly don't think they're bad contracts -- which in turn makes them not bad contracts -- just fair market value in today's market.

As for trade value, i'm not suggesting that Komisarek has much, I'm simply saying that it's ludicrous to suggest that Komisarek is incapable of earning his $4.5m cap hit.

These contracts aren't bad -- they are fair market value today. They are the cost of acquiring players with no assets moving the other direction.
