As for who I'm more excited to see, I'd say Komisarek.

To be honest, I know we've watched him play many times with the Habs, but I still can't say I've noticed what style of game he plays because I've simply never watched him with that intent (that he's going to be a Leaf).

But I'm very excited about Beauchemin too. We've heard great things about his shot and I want to see it in a game ASAP!

Definately Beauchemin.

He is a complete package IMO.

He is very good in his own zone, has has solid offensive abilities, he can be a trigger man on the PP, he is very physical.

Beauch. Always liked his game, a very under-rated d-man. He hits with the best of em, fights when needed, is tough as nails, is a decent puck mover and has offensive upside. He's got everything you could want from a guy making what he's making. Komi is fun to watch but he certainly lacks offense, which is fine. He blocks tons of shots, lays guys out and he fought Milan effin Lucic. He didn't fare well at all but anyone wiling to go Lucic has my respect. Komi is a shutdown guy, Beach is more all-round. Both bring positives to this team. They were both great moves despite our current glut on defense...it's a good thing to have.

I think Beauchemin was the better signing but I'm far more excited to see Komisarek play. I really hope he does well.

I am more excited to See Komi play because I actually know what kind of stuff he does.

Would it be safe to say that Beachemin is a Jeff Finger who is pretty much better in all areas of the game?

Not at all, McCabe-lite with less mistakes. Hard shot, similar overall style of play, won't give the puck away on a drop pass infront of his goalie, but will make mistakes with the puck. He likes to play chippy (backs it up better than McCabe) and handles himself in a similar manner on the ice. Instigates confrontations, sticks up for teammates, etc.. Doesn't find the net nearly as well as McCabe, and that's why his offensive numbers aren't there.

IMO, Exelby was brouht in to say helllllloooo to Lucic. Orr is here for the tough S.O.B's in the league, and for specifically for Mr. Chara. Boston will hate us by years end.

Having all the toughness added in beau,komi,and exelby all together is exciting to me.Schenn and kabby are going to kick butt with the mix the 3 of them add to the team.

*Always hated komi though,and his growly style*. komi gets my nod!

Teams are going to have their hands full with our d-men. Its a really good mix with dependable depth in the 7-8-9-10 slots.

I wonder how many teams go 10 deep with NHL capable d-men.

Komi probably, though I really took a shine to Beau during the Ducks cup run. Anytime we played Montreal I HATED Komisarek's guts. Respected, but hated his guts. I hope other teams will now hate him like that.

We should let Grabovski and Komisarek take a lap at the Bell Centre by themselves before the game.

I really hope you guys, that Komi will rebound from last year.

I also hope he will be better ''between the ears'' so that Lucic crap will finaly go away.

Just don't have your bars open too late.

If you haven't see the pics of him. Be sure that watch when you'll be playing NY. He might go out with Higgins again.


All joke aside. You got two good D. But Beauchemin experience put him over Komi.

No, I'm just asking if he's a better version of Jeff Finger, thats all. It appears that they're similar players to me from what I've read. Would this be accurate?

Can Someone fill in the rest?:
Shot: Beachemin
Shot Blocking:
Hits:
Fights:
Defensively:
Giveaways:
Takeaways:
Offencively:
Puck Moving Ability:
(Whatever else you can think of):

i was just playing around, Finger is known to be an all around player so good in all areas but not GREAT in one specific area. so it would be a fair statement to say that beauchemin is basically a better Finger. However, Beauchemin is great in many areas and the areas where he lacks, its still better than many defensemen in the NHL.

i completed your list in bold.

also, finger was second on the leafs in shot blocks last season which is the reason that i put him up as better for shot blocks. another thing is with offensive upside Finger did have more points than Beauchemin last season(he was injured) however, throughout his career he has been around a 30-40 point per season defenseman. the reason i put him as better offensively is more goals than assists.

You might want to recheck those figures you have in mind for Beauchemin .

Beauchemin's best NHL season was 4 years ago when he recorded 8 goals and 34 points both career highs in 2005-06 coming out of the lockout.

In the past 3 season he has had point totals of 28 points in 71 games (2006-07), 21 points in 82 games (2007-08) and played only 20 games last season after a serious knee injury and recoded 5 points in those game ~= 20-21 points on a full season at that pace.

That makes his last 3 seasons average approximately 23 points and for comparison purposes Finger registered 6-17-23 points last year with the Leafs.

So for similar stats both players are getting similar pay and term as Beauchemin is age 29 with 3 years X $3.8 mil and Finger is 29 with 3 years X $3.5 mil.
