Personally, I find this sad to see. I really loved the guy when he was with us and it's sad how he's regressed. Ditto with Chris Higgins who I was sure would someday hit the 40 goal mark.
Interestingly, with both players you can point to a moment in time where their careers were derailed.
For Higgins, it was a serious ankle injury. He had a wonderful breakthrough season and was on fire to start the following year only to wreck himself on the boards. For whatever reason, he was never the same afterwards. It was the same deal with Komisarek. He got destroyed by Lucic and never came back the same.
Just pondering and too lazy to think about it myself. I need a snack.
basically add Komisarek, remove spacek...
perhaps it also means that we would have targeted a more mobile/puck moving type bottom pairing/bottom 3 dman (instead of Gill), but otherwise the salaries are more or less a wash (~700K more).
and as much as people want to rag on Komisarek as a "traitor" (still amazes me, he's a traitor because his boss decided to wait until the last minute to negociate a new contract with him, thus showing a huge lack of faith/respect), and as much as injuries and subsequent time away have slowed/regressed his progression, he'd still be a better asset to this team than what we have in Jaro the old...
