If he was only on the books for this season maybe- but even that would be a maybe. He's been bad enough for long enough that there's no way I would want to be committed to $4.5mil for another season.
Sure, if he didn't work there's always a buyout and it ain't my money... but there aren't too many folks rich enough they would go into a situation half (if not more) expecting to flush $3mil down the toilet.
I doubt the Wings would consider even giving up a 7th for him. Kenny has shown that he prefers any reclamation projects to be done via free agency where he Wings have control over the dollars and term.
Only Saturdays when the Wings aren't on.
But I don't think I've seen Komi much.
I saw him last year. He has negatives for sure. But he also has positives that he can bring that nobody else on our team can bring, and that very few available defenseman can bring
What positives does he bring? Hes not better than any of the stay at home types on the wings (Ericcson, Lashoff) especially for the money. He has that big of a contract and has been a consistent healthy scratch on a team that is generally bad defensively.
This is a case of the grass being greener on the other side, Komi is a plug
