Speaks volumes to the contract status of the team and its bad contracts that they're other candidates worthy of compliance buyout consideration, making Komisarek not the worst contract to use it on, or the optimal choice perhaps.
I think it's short-sighted to view a player having an off year (Liles and/or Grabs) makes them compliance buyout candidates. Using this criteria, Franson would have been bought out last year (if he had a contract to be bought out). Komi on the other hand has been a multi-year underperformer.
