Until I see Ranger do anything of significance in the NHL (after his long NHL layoff), Komi will be the better defenseman. Carlyle will know how to use Komiserek in his system and frankly we need some defensive defensemen.
Also I think Komiserek is the only right handed defenseman we have (unless franson is resigned).
Yeah, I'm not sure if it was the hit. For all we know at this point during intermission he went to eat some pancakes and pulled his back. Whatever the reason was for him not playing in the 3rd, I hope it isn't serious.
poor guy... we all know you have to stretch before eating pancakes...
