If Malone doesn't fit financially, how the hell would Komisarek help us??? Komisarek is useless and so is Lebda, sorry but we don't want to pick up Burke's mistakes. Last year in a game against the Thrashers where the Leafs won 9-3, Lebda was a -3. It's just a small taste of how truly terrible he is.
Malone also has value to this team, more so than Komisarek or Lebda. The Lightning are NOT in trouble financially.
Pretty funny thread even though I hate when people try to tell us about our financial situation and especially when they offer Komisarek who makes the same money and plays a style of play that doesn't fit.
All I can do to counter is say that Malone has a NMC, why would he waive to go to Toronto?
It makes me feel good that when Vinik and Yzerman are on their hands and knees looking for pennies to scrape together to keep this franchise afloat, we can always look north to our good friends in blue to help us out by taking our expensive players away.
I think we would have to add at least a first or connolly for toronto to consider this. Plus we owe toronto for stuff in the past. If we don't make this trade we could lose stamkos to an offer sheet or hedman in a couple of years. We have too much offense we need to think about defense, komisarek is a defenseman so it makes sense. And worst of all we need to start doing something now or else we'll end up like atlanta since vinik is losing money and nobody goes to the games. Woo are we.
Well, while I think Im ok with this deal in the OP. We are really struggling with our finances so I think Toronto will have to pay for the plane tickets for both Malone and Lebda/Komisarek. Can that be arranged?
