He's the kind of player that is involved every shift, all over the ice. A fan favourite for sure.
So to those of you who don't like the sounds of this deal, research the kid a little bit and when you see him play, your opinion will change real fast. Because he's an Islander, he's probably one of the most unknown and under rated first round picks of recent years, but if he was on a more highly visable team he'd be getting a lot of love here.
many of us are not liking it because of the fact that the habs are already loaded with forwards when it's common knowledge that we lack the young depth on defense. emelin and fischer won't be with the team for a while, while Ryan O'Byrne and cote don't have the same kind of upside that komisarek possesses (komi was exceptional last season). with 3 of our top d-men becoming UFA's next season, trading komisarek would put us at a very vulnerable situation.
i've heard a little about bergenheim, and the guy does have a lot of 'upside'. but if he was as awesome as you say he is...he'd be playing for them right now. it's not like the isles are loaded up front or anything.
