Which sports radio broadcast were you listening to when you heard this Savynquick?

Oh, and quoting another hockey board is not a credible source. So I deleted your post that contained the link.

Him and Higgins went to Gainey around Christmas to get new contracts and Gainey said that he won't re-sign anyone until after the season is over.

This concept of waiting is something a lot of uneducated hockey fans simply cannot grasp, due to their complete inability to understand the job of a General Manager. Thus, you have unfounded rumours of players about to leave or wanting more money, simply because, "If the team wanted them to stay, they would sign them now".

Why ask this now? Shouldn't this upcoming series be the real litmus test?

Do you realize that we let Streit go and no the other way around? The organization didn't think Streit could play as a regular on defense and I can fully understand why (Streit had a tough time handling big forwards and was pretty weak defensively). Since Streit couldn't be guaranteed a spot on D, he went elsewhere.

It seems that the Habs were not the only organization to question Streit's defensive ability since the Islanders (of all teams) grabbed him. We can now see that Streit has flourished as a go-to guy. Good for him.

As for Komi. He had a very very bad season and will most likely be signed for under 4 millions by the Habs. I'm personnaly hoping for Colin White money (3 M$) because I think those two guys bring similar things to the table. Komisarek seems to love it here and sees that the organization is ready to put a lot of trust in him (named assistant captain, possible future captain). He doesn't strike as a guy to aim for the big bucks, but you never know.

I just wish he had an ounce of offensive upside. As much as Komi is a warrior and one of the best in the business at blocking shots he's extremely one-dimensional. That's the reason I think he's not going to get as much as people think imo.

I'm praying Habs sign Komi, but I fear some team will offer him an insane amount of money.

Hell Yeah!! Komi proved his value last week in the game in Boston. He's a warrior and you need physical gamers like him to succeed in the playoffs. He's just entering his prime years.

I agree, if he had some offensive upside he would be worth more but he doesn't. 4 million on a long term contract is a little high on a good team for his services. (oh and I am assuming you mean 10 yrs = long term) so I voted NO!!

Before this season I would have said that 4 million is fair but he had a terrible season for him. This is the 1st season he has gone backwords in his abilities. I am glad that Bob is waiting till the playoffs are over. One thing is for sure, Bob probably has the toughest job in Hockey, this summer will be very interesting as Bob has a lot of work to do in a short time.

Everyone says that.
''He's from Long Island, he'll go with the Islanders and get big bucks!''
But IMO, Komi is young and does not want to go to a rebuilding team, not to mention he seems to love it here.

I wanted to add 1 more thing. I hate long term contracts. 5 to 6 years is as far as I hope Gainey goes on any long term contract. Anything longer is just stupid.

Streit didn't want to leave to NYI. He just got a great offer from there.
Komi wants to stay here as he mentioned it before the season started and the habs clearly want him to stay seeing as they allowed him to go behind the bench while injured.
He's not going anywhere, his situation is more comparable to the one of Markov, not Streit.

Markov said he loved playing here but wasn't re-signed during the season. Since he barely spoke to the media and always was a shy/quiet man, not too many people thought he'd re-sign but we all know what happened.

Komi will be a habs for many years to come, I'd bet anything on that. I'd tattoo the Bruins logo on my ass if he doesn't sign here.

No thank you. That is Markov money. Komi is nowhere near Markov. As someone said, he is very one-dimensional. If another team is going to overpay for him (like 5.5 million) then let him walk. I personally wouldn't give him over 3.5 for 3-4 years.

4,5mil max on a 3 or 4 years deal is as far as I would go...

Ohlund is a great choice and so is Beauchemin... The way he played without Markov showed us he deserves to be re-sign, but if another team wants to overpay for him, go ahead...

@4M per, I'd be fine with a long term deal...
it's a lot to pay, and we'd have to hope that he can improve on his performance this year, but at some point as a franchise you have to make commitments to "core" guys who you want to build your team around.

Komi may not be great all around, even mediocre as far as offensive contributions, but he is the only guy who brings a real physical precense in the back end, and from what it looks like on the outside, he seems to be settling into a leadership role on and off the ice (though i could be wrong about that).

if he goes, we're left having to bring in someone else to play top four minutes on D, and frankly outside of JBo or Ohlund, there is no one available that would be a clear upgrade on Komi...

this is the big problem... If Komi walks, there is really no way for Gainey to come away without egg on his face (unless he's busy planning a cup parade). You do what you have to do to keep the players you want to build your team with, and/or you move the quality players you have for other assets if you can't/won't be able to sign them... GM 101 i would think...

Actually I think the word was the Streit was willing to sign for less in February. I think we erred. I think most folks know that now.

Meanwhile I think Komi while not in the superstar category, he is in the desireable D man grouping. I think we should resign the guy

I've made peace with it.

If he wants outrageous money, I'll be glad to let him go play for another team and succeed there until he becomes a burden, which we won't then have to worry about. His physical type of game will take a toll, I don't expect him to be dominant for all his career (funny I should say that seeing the play he's responsible of this season).

We have some nice prospects or we could spend the cap otherwise, options are there.

Yes, sign him to a 4-year deal worth between $3.5 and 4 million a year.
