Yeah it was a bit of an overstatement on my part, but they are pretty damn close. Both are great hitters and shot-blockers. Both put up similar numbers, though I think O'Brien has better offensive upside.

However, for some weird reason I either thought Komi was older than he is or O'Brien was younger. I also thought O'Brien had a lot more points than he did.

But either way, when you look at it, O'Brien had the better season. But Komisarek was injured (or appeared it) for quite a bit of the season and didn't play like his normal self.

If Komisarek plays like he can, he's easily a top-3 defensive d-man in the league, if not the best.

Not completed yet, but it looks like it should be done by Monday. I wonder how many years the Malone contract is for.

Probably 5, or 6 and in 2-3 years Tampa will be begging people to take him off their hands.

i just found this on tsn:
Adding some intrigue to the story, sources tell TSN that last week the Lightning hired former Penguins' player Greg Malone as their head pro scout. Greg Malone is of course the father of Ryan.

haha thats interesting if true.

as for the deal.. i figured malone would get 4-4.5 max heh

That is interesting, thanks for finding that. I thought the same as you, I figured he would get a 4 year 16 mil-ish or 5 year 20 mil-ish

Sportsnet story said the contract will *exceed* 30 million, so even at 6 years, 5 million would be the lowest possible contract.

Yup. Imagine, they got rid of Richards who had a 7,8 million cap. There is just no point to it anymore. Way to go TB.

Their goalie is still Smith right?

If that's true it's a horrible overpayment.

Maybe overpaying, but there is some method to their madness.

The new owners want to make a splash and show their fanbase they won't be penny pinching scroungers and want to compete. A big name free agent will definitely show their fans that. Malone is also American and a character guy (big hits, tatoos, etc.) so he will help generate more buzz than some quiet russian guy with a crazy name who needs a translator to do interviews. As a last placed team they'd need to pay a bit more of a premium too to attract players. He should do alright production wise on Stamkos' or Lecavlier's wing, and provide some real jam too just like he did with Malkin.

Tamba Bay has a good fanbase (top 10 in NHL attendance) but theyre not gonna follow a loser forever. A deep rebuild might make better hockey sense, but it would kill the guy financially to see attendance #s start drifting downwards.

Anyone know how good the lightning's young defencemen are? I dont hear much about them. If Smith can give them the goaltending he's hyped for, and they have some good young dmen, things will be looking up there and they could be back in competition for a lower playoff spot. I'd consider them a dark horse, but it hinges on goaltending more than anything else.

Yeah but they also got Mike Smith, a very good young goalie. Goaltending has been the lightning's biggest problem since they lost Khabibulen.

I stand firm on this belief and i don't care what anyone says.

Ryan Malone for more than 3.5 is a rip off. He was a warrior in the playoffs but that's not the same Malone throughout the season and without Malkin...this should be interesting in Tampa. I'm going to keep a close eye on his production next season. Maybe i might eat my words, but i highly doubt that.

Oh I know, I guess some GM's never learn. Yes as far as I know it's Smith and Ramos.
