Obviously, they would have to assess his ability to make an impact at the NHL level, but he is a bottom 6 player that can bring a lot to the table. The Leafs could certainly use an agitating player. Anything is an upgrade over Sjostrom.
AH! I was just about to say the exact same thing! lol.

In his picture, he kind of looks like Lebda. That's agitating me.

Yes, I sign him.

We need to actually draft/developed third-line talent.

I'm not talking about failed top-six guys who just weren't good enough for that.

I'm talking about a physical, shutdown, great checker, top PKer who is good for 40 points on the third line.

Boyce isn't that. Brent isn't that. We don't have that in our system with the exception of Hanson and Ryan/Ross.

WOW. I agree. We do not have developed players that excel at this role. I believe that komarov type talent, with ryan and ross, are destined to be impact players in the bottom 6 that are to play with brown, and army.

And what are you basing this opinion on? Been watching him a lot in Russia?

Without seeing him play, but noticing he was a KHL all-star would lead me to believe he's at least capable of playing above the ECHL like you stated earlier in the thread.

Also if we sign him I'm sure it's Leafs or bust, as he'd make a lot more money in the KHL then the AHL.

Guy's getting raving reviews on the Trades & Free Agent Talk Forum.

Sign him up and see what he can do at least in training camp Burke.

he is like a Ruutu type player with some offence. it's worth the look. if not it's possible we could trade his rights for another player. Carl Haglin is also a NCAA UFA this year if the Rangers don't sign him.. I'd take the risk on Haglin.

Are you seriously saying that the KHL is worse than the AHL?

Hes saying that he thinks Leo's peak in NA will be the AHL. He's not comparing it with KHL.

What I was thinking. I don't think we get much access to KHL or any euro games here in NA. I would take the euro posters words for it. I'm intrigued.

KHL games can be watched for free online last I checked. I just don't think anyone bothers.

(Bumping old thread as I don't feel like making a new one.)

I keep seeing people with Komarov on the 4th line what I wanted to bring up is does anything else feel like if he can get adapted to the North American game that it is not impossible to see him being a 3rd line grinder? I mean he has shown in the KHL and AHL he has the ability to put the puck in the net and play an overall solid game. I just feel like he could very well play his way onto the third line.

We'll find out when the NHL starts up again.

Kind of hard to suggest he can or cannot when he's never played a game in the NHL.

He was the Marlies' leading goal scorer when he left.

I don't think it's a stretch by any means to say he could be a serviceable 3rd liner in the NHL.
