Mike Komisarek

How much trade value does Mike Komisarek actually have?

Personally, I don't think you could get much for him, maybe a low draft pick. His contract is too high for his production. (4.5 mil./5 points/a +/- of -13) I think he needs to step up his physical game, when he hits he can hit hard. I think his game would step up and he would then gain more confidence and maybe become a bit more valuable to the Leafs.

Do you think it's possible, with Randy Carlyle as the Leafs new coach, for Komi to turn around his game and be the defence he was in Montreal? Is it in the Leafs best interest to keep him? Trade him? Buy out his contract?

Thoughts?

Komisarek for Gomez.

Habs dump 3 mil in salary and can hope Komisarek rebounds.

Leafs solve their 1st line centre problem.

He has none. With Schenn gone and Carlyle here -- he will be kept and fingers will be crossed that he can turn it around. The Leafs actually need a defenseman like him. A physical one, thats is -- not one that struggles...

Less than zero.

MAYBE they could package a decent pick with him and trade him for a slightly smaller salary dump, but even that is not that likely.

Also, in before 'Gomez'. Edit : nope. LOL

If he was a UFA right now, how many team would jump on the opportunity to offer him a 4.500 000$ x 2 years contract ?

It answer all your question about his value.

And keep in mind that 3 years ago, when Komisarek was in his prime, Toronto was the only team in the entire league willing to offer this. Its not like Komisarek incredibly increased his value since them.

Deadline 2014 could be the right timing to trade Komisarek, his value could become slightly positive then since his contract will be almost up and at the deadline, players increase in value. (For pick, Think Kovalev to Pittsburgh for a 7th round draft pick as an example)

Mike Komisarek have no value, that's the problem of the Maple Leafs, the only chance to trade him is to send him in a package deal with an other team with many expensive contract.

For his big contract with Toronto he benefit of one good year with the talent by his side of Markov at his best before his injury.

What's his salary to cap hit look like? Constant? Salary drops towards end of contract?

A cap floor team, that might run a more friendly defense for Komi, could have some interest.

I say his value is around a 4th or a fringe prospect right now.

I think he has 2 years left but don't quote me on it because I could easily be wrong

If Barb Underhill can turn him into a better skater, then she really will be the unsung hero in this organization.

I think Gomez has the same amount left as well though. I really don't think it would be that awful a swap.

I would consider a Gomez/Komi swap if we didn't have so much flab in the bottom 6.

Negative value. It would take a pretty good asset from the leafs for a team to take the contract.

To be quite honest, I think Komisarek will play better this season. He should benefit from Carlyles style of play compared to Ron Wilsons nonexistent d.

I know Komi doesn't have much value, but he has more than Gomez+Redden.

About equal to Wade Redden and a 7th round pick.

You're right Gomez+Redden would be too much. I'd say Gomez straight up or my previous post.

Instead of Armstrong, Komisarek should have topped Burkes buyout list this summer. Komisarek is a nightmare defensively.

Gomez & Redden can be shoved into the minors (they don't have a "NMC"). To a rich team like the Leafs, that is a pretty relevant difference. Komi has a "NMC" which makes his contract pure poison.

I know next to nothing about Komisarek because I never watch Leafs games, but what kind of player is he?

I know many leafs fans despise him because of his contract, but would you want him on the roster if his contract could be restructured today? How much do you think he should be paid? Does even he belong in the NHL? What are the positives/negatives of his game?

While some might say he'll be a better player under Carlyle, he has absolutely ZERO trade value until he PROVES he's a better player under Carlyle. He needs to show it first, then we can talk about "Komi under Wilson" vs the at-the-moment-hypothetical "new and improved Carlyle-motivated Komisarek".

So maybe at the trade deadline, if he truly has a turnaround season, he might be worth a mid-late pick. But he's completely worthless until then, unless the Isles or Coyotes (both being at least $6-7 mil under the floor at present) decide to toss the leafs a 7th rounder to take that contract off Toronto's books and get themselves closer to the floor, and take a gamble that all Komisarek needs is a "change of scenery" or something. It's a heck of a gamble, though.
