Actually that's where we should be looking to upgrade our D this offseason, much as we upgraded our forwards in 05-06 via the compliance buyouts of Whitney and Stillman getting dollars on a dime for them.
I'll dig deeper and see who all are likely buyout candidates.
If I had my guess Komisarek is a near lock for the Canes.
Not complaining myself, if we get him cheap he is the Allen-type crease-clearing, shot-blocking D the Canes need. Muller should be familiar with him (assistant coached him during his best years at Montreal) and given the 4 games Komi played this year, I'd guess teams will not be knocking down his doors.
