Ps, physical d-men don't earn their keep putting their team a man down as a result of taking dumb penalties when the game isn't even being played (post whistle), and for 4.5M you'd think your physical d-man had more than just one attribute. Just being physical doesn't make you an NHL caliber player. If that were true every dumbass with size would have an NHL job.
Not really. He's screwed up under Wilson, that's not necessarily going to hold true under Carlyle.

Phaneuf takes just as many dumb penalties, and as for only having one aspect, what do you think makes Volchenkov worth his money?

Komisarek is a "stay at home" defenseman, who is barely average for his role! He is completely incapable of being worth $4.5 even at his best.
What Komisarek lacks in offensive output he has in physicality. He's also $1m less than those guys. The guy has proven capable of being a top pair defenceman in Montreal, and found a terrible situation under Ron Wilson in Toronto. No reason he can't regain form to a top 4 guy, and $4.5m is certainly within the going rate these days.
