For the Leafs, I would hope that an abbreviated season is Komisarek's audition to not get bought out. He should finally get his chance to play a role he can succeed at (in the top 4, for a coach not named Ron Wilson), and if he's able to regain the ability to succeed as a top 4 shutdown guy, he will be quite valuable to the Leafs, even at $4.5m.

That being said, if he fails again, I would sincerely hope Burke's loyalty doesn't blind him in this case. $4.5m is simply too much to pay for a bottom pairing defenceman. They'd be best served buying him out, and then signing a defenceman of his calibre or better at fair market value.
