If they can trade him great, but I doubt they move a contract like that without taking a similar contract in return (after this year Liles has three more years at $3.875 million - not a punitive cap hit, but not insignificant for a player that can't get in the lineup). Nonis would deserve a statue if he received something tangible for a d-man on a long-term contract that can't make his roster.

I'm actually surprised they haven't bought out Komi (I'm not sure about the rules for the buy outs, perhaps they could only be used before the season started like New York did with Redden and Montreal did with Gomez). With Gardiner in the minors and now Liles in the press box the only scenario that I can see Komi getting back into the lineup would involve a catastrophic run of injuries.
