Plus Leafs dump Komisarek in the deal without giving up top players/prospect/picks

However it is that contract that is the x factor since its still to be seen if he is a product of Tippet's defensive system or not. I think he's as good as his career average of 2.50 gaa .915 sv% on a team thats not run and gun. But because of that contract, that basically takes away any value he has.
He's not the answer for Toronto, I'd much rather have Tim Thomas for a season or two.
