Too bad Mike has not worked out for us.

I liked the signing at the time cause I thought we were taking a half descent player away from the Habs even though I thought that it was too high a salary.

I don't think he has been given a fair chance under Carlyle. I think he'd be better off to allow a trade to any team willing to take him on.

I wish Komi all the best no matter where he ends up.

The time to sell for picks is NOT when the team is 3 points out of first

The time to sell Mike K. would be the minute another G.M. offers to take him and his contract off our hands for let's say a 4th to 7th round draft pick.

Sigh. Real shame about Komi. He was turning a stride.

A little blame has to go to Carlyle. Don't spew this ******** about "work hard and you'll play" or "entitlement", "accountability", etc. On numerous occasions, the likes of Holzer, Kostka, Gunnarsson, etc. have been trash in more than a few games in a row - yet he still sits.

Western Conference has to be perfect for a guy like MK with the Hawks running roughshot.

Maybe the Islanders pull through and make everyone happy.

Best of luck, Mike.

If we eat some of his salary, say 2 m a year we might actually be able to get something half-decent back for him. I'd rather save the cap-space and just unload him for scraps to whoever wants him.

This says a lot about Komi. Carlyle prefers/covets big, physical dman and yet...no room for the defensive liability known as Mike Komisarek. I put Komi right up there with exelby, finger - etc.... The guy is not NHL caliber anymore.

Good piece here on sportsnet about this situation: http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/trade..._trade_report/ ... looks like no takers...even if the Leafs offered to eat 50% of the contract. Wow.... Komi should really look into joining the AHL with his buddy Timmy C.

There is an article on sportsnet (see my above post) that suggests there are no takers..even if the Leafs offer to eat 50% of Komi's contract. There is no market for the guy at this time.

Sucks. He was really turning his game around.
Could definitely be a top 4 on another team

Weird how this franchise has really lost all identity when it comes to Captains. I hope that the Leafs start to put the "A" or the "C" on players that are in the long term plans. Seems like a joke here now.

myself and countless other leaf fans i know will disagree with your statement. holzer is much better than komisarek. i mean much better. and in a few years - when holzer gets a couple of nhl seasons under his belt we won't even remember komisarek. the guy is horrible. just because carlyle gave me 7 minutes of ice time in a couple of games and he didn't screw anything up doesn't mean he's all of a sudden turned it around.

mike komisarek is and always will be a defensive liability.

This is true, Carlyle is human after all, and I think it's easy to coast on first impressions than it is to dig yourself out of a hole after someone's already made up their mind about who you are.

Yup Komi really should ask to be sent down to Marlies.

I have zero sympathy for him.

If the team is winning you don't change the line up for a 3rd. pairing guy, or promote a guy from the minors to bench someone helping in the wins.

Nonis probably holding out for something of value.

Total commitment from the receiving team is probably about $5 million over the rest of his contract.

His contract isn't horrible, and in the right situation he might even look good. Leafs didn't change their keepers this year and they look much better.

Running Ronnies are long gone.

Why does anybody feel bad for a lousy hockey player who makes close to 4M dollars a season. Are you kidding me? Anybody feel bad when the career of Jeff Finger was ruined? Dont think so. How about Vesa Toskala? Was a capable NHL goaltender before playing for the Leafs..destroyed...Andrew Raycroft a former Calder winner..destroyed. Nobody cares about these guys, not saying that you should. No more than you should care about this clunker of a hockey stiff. He is done and near the end I believe...but he will probably live better than anybody on this board who "feels sorry" for him.

Safe to say we've seen the last of him in a Leafs uniform. He'll be bought out if a buyer can't be found.

I always thought he would make sense to the Islanders.
1. Doubt it
2. Yes, we can probably get a 3rd or 4th for him
3. Yes! Edmonton is really banged up, their missing their top top 4 guys and its forcing them to play Whitney (who they want gone btw) adding Komi would be an addition to them. Komi brings leadership and will help a young Oilers squad, he's physical and when he keeps it simple he is effective.
4. I can see the Islanders too, its near his hometown and they can afford his salary, plus they like our leftovers

He will go elsewhere and thrive in less pressure. All the best, Mike.

I agree. I mean I think a lot of Leaf and hockey fans would have a bit more respect for Komisarek if his list of 12 teams - was actually a list of 29 teams. Additionally, when I read about what hockey fans from other teams are saying, they are making jokes like: "I hope Komisarek's list includes the abbotsford heat or the chicago wolves...."....

He's more than likely done in the NHL.

I disagree with that! Komi was brutal here because he played in a high tempo system that messed him up. But when Carlye brought in a defense first approach Komi was solid late last year getting top 4 minutes, and he was one of the better blueliners this year before going down with an eye injury. I still think he can be an effective bottom pairing guy for a team looking to add depth and grit for a playoff run, will he ever be the Komi he was pre 2007? No, but I think he can reedeem himself though under a new team.

Why doesnt he do himself a favor and include the Toronto Marlies. He probably would be playing immediately. Mr.Connolly is a better NHL player and always has been than Komisauras. In fact Mikey is no better than another stiff on a similar contract that played for the Marlies for years...Mr.Finger.
