Kinda like how many people wouldn't take Doughty over Subban?

It's always been that way. To be fair though, we aren't the only fan base that does it. For instance, just look at Maple Leafs'. When I first joined this board, they were raving about Kyle Wellwood, Alexander Steen and Carlo Cola... Ugh. I'm not going to spell it out.

Well said. It's not a unique problem to MTL fans, it's a problem every fan base has. Just look at Bozak's small sample from two years ago and how they raved about him being a reason they'd do so much better (and make the playoffs) the following year. Didn't work out so well for them did it?

I'd take him for Spacek, because I feel playing with Markov could bring out the best in Komi and also believes he provides an element to the game we are sorely lacking. I don't believe spacek provides anything unique and his skill set isn't what it used to be, so I would take Komi over him.

Not to mention that the analogy is deeply flawed. Komisarek had already made more than enough money in Montreal to last a lifetime and lead a very comfortable life. Montreal's offer was also very strong (reportedly). In fact, if the rumours are true, it was way too strong for an average defensive defenceman with no offensive upside.

Komisarek chose to leave. It was probably because he's greedy. He also didn't seem to like it in Montreal. Good for him and good for us that he's gone. He wouldn't make this team better.
We should probably turn Erik Cole away then.

I remember 2008 Canadiens edition. Komisarek was the only player on it that wasnt terrified by Lucic. He's the only one who fought til the end in that series. He got his ass kicked twice defending his teammate by fighting an heavyweight fighter, because nobody else in that year (except maybe Kovalev) gave a **** about the jersey they were wearing.

Yeah, he crossed the line so he's never welcome back here anymore, but I'll show him a little respect for that.

At this point he's basicly Mara but with too much confidence problems. I never like how Komi always seemed out of his game whenever he'd had to face an adversary in a scrum or in a fight. While Mara can take a beating or give one without looking like his dog just die.

I don't see the need for Komisarek. The Habs have already turned in a new direction. Most of the newer Dmen in the system (Weber, Yemelin. Subban, Beaulieu, Diaz) are more gifted offensively.

Do you realize that years ago, people here were comparing him to Stevens, plain and simple? I never said he was a great player, I just love the same people trashing him, were probably the same ones who wouldn't have traded him for anyone... like every other prospect we have.

Komisarek had some excellent years with us. It's funny to see people tear him down because he changed teams as a UFA.

He should be loyal to the fans, and sign for a hometown discount, $500,000/year to help get better teammates. It's more than he'll ever need, unless he's wasteful.

The fact he has not done so makes him a traitor.

He really did play well for us, I love how the 'fans' turned on him because he got a better offer and wanted a change.. its as if some people believe he 'owed' them something, and should have stayed no matter what the circumstances were.

Our 'fans' ability to build up a player, only to tear them down, is unmatched.. and pathetic.... can't wait for them to unleash the same cycle of hatred on Subban next.

What's harder to take is that he was an important part of our core at the time, and decided to go to a lesser rival team.

It's kinda like getting cheated on by your girlfriend with your retarded brother.

I was more unhappy about Souray than Komisarek. Souray was a guy we used to his maximum and he left because markov was talked to first. Komisarek left, but he was a warrior with us. As you said, an important piece of our core but he left and we moved on. Price was too high. Not sure why people hate him for it.

By the time he signed with Toronto for that inflated contract even his biggest fans weren't sorry to see him go,

I agree, Mara was a beast when he played. I'd take Mara at 1 mill over Komi and what he doesn't bring.

I remember thinking anything over 2.5 was too much, but only because he had a very limited role as a blueliner. However, I never thought he 'sucked', I just accepted he was a good partner for Markov and a good role player on this team.

I thought he would have stayed, just after watching him behind the bench, as an injured player. He really looked at home here.
