Leo Komarov

We have this summer to sign him to a contract. It has been stated he wants to come play in N/A.

I've heard nothing but good thinks about him and his rough style of play. At best he would be a 3rd liner, but i would like to see what he is like

do you think he will get signed this off season?

I doubt it, not with all the players who should be coming out of the CHL and NCAA combined with the Marlies current roster. Same situation as Ruesegger.

Komarov brings a different aspect than Ruegsegger did. 4th line energy and grit guy. He seems like he'd be a valuable guy to any team.

Ruegsegger is long gone.

If Komarov is legit he either gets signed or his rights traded but he can also wait a year and become an UFA.

I'd like to sign him on a 2 way contract... give him a shot. I've seen comparison with Clutterbuck...

could be a solid 3-4 for us.

Does he do much more than K.Ryan does? Sounds like a smaller version.

Well he could probably be on our fourth line next year if all accounts are correct where as Kenny Ryan needs more time. I don't know much about them to compare their games so I'm not sure.

That he takes up a contract spot from someone better?

I could see Burke choosing not to sign him because we might be too close to the 50 contract limit. God I hate that rule. If there's space though management should definitely give him a look.

Any signing will be for next season's 50 contract limit and there are a bunch of potential openings.

I've heard that Nonis has contacted his agent but after that not much is known

personally i'd be against this, he doesn't seem like that player that burke would want to sign, wasn't he the guy who had some issues with his rage or whatever? Eitherway, I rather give a contract to another college free agent tbh.

Well obviously if someone better is available, then sign them instead. That goes without saying. I meant to say, sign him if he's good. I've personally never heard of him, so i wouldn't know.

I'd sign him, He's 24, And he's already has 6 years of pro hockey under his belt. If he can fill a 4th line spot, And piss off some people in the process he'd be a good addition.

Also due to his age we'd only have to sign him on a 1-year contract.

I'd rather sign him then sign another 6'5" softie like Irwin or Kyle Rogers. He's seen some time on the Finnish national team and I'd love to have a Jarkko Ruutu type player in the system. Can't hurt.

And if we're close to the contract limit that's not a big deal. Make a minor trade like Berry/Giliati for Lashoff or send Devane or Ryan back for an overage year.

some of the finnish posters were saying he could fit into any bottom 6 in the league, plays a "brian burke" way of hockey and can skate, agigitate, and forecheck really well and supposedly has a good shot. plus is 5'11 200lbs. better signing him to a 2 year 900k contract then signing upshall for 2.5m+ imho. sounds like he can really be a player.

I think he's just an agitator mostly. Not much offensively. If he gets sign he's Reading Royals type of property or less, and would have to work his way up the system.

A JFJ draft pick, I don't see him as an NHLer.

Wouldn't be against giving him a shot. Likely would head back to Europe if he didn't land an NHL gig. I think his contract wouldn't count against the Maple Leafs if that was the case .. (under the 50 contract limit).
