Poor guy. Pure class-act, character-filled, leader, and a true professional. It's a shame it didn't work out here - but he was playing well at the end of last season/this season (in his 4 games).

Hope he finds a home.

He'd probably take over Yeo's spot, or someone like Grimshaw. Not much lost there.

Thank you. Never the same after jumping ship in MTL. The game is just too fast for him. Solid guy, best of luck.

Well, for his sake I hope he does, for ours, I hope it's a Western team.

Leafs would love him to be picked up on waivers. If he clears, I think he might not even play very much if at all on the Marlies (still the fear of injury derailing a compliance buyout). He will be resigned by someone after any buyout though and could haunt the Leafs in the future....but he was done here and I wish him the best.

If you include Brown and Steckel also now departed with LACK .. You're left with a LACK of BS on the current roster as a result of spring house cleaning in Toronto.

Is that light at the end of the tunnel that one can start to see ?

Wow, I was hoping he would get a chance to play in the next few weeks. I thought he looked good in the games he did play in earlier in the season. With all the off-season training (losing some weight and improving his skating), and Carlyle's defensive system I thought he would be one of our go-to shutdown dmen.
I guess the coaching staff saw something in him that they didn't like in him.
Best of luck to him, and it was great that he was a good sport all season long.

I can't believe people don't even realize the main reason those players were there was to insulate our prospects or players that we are still training in the AHL. It's amazing now people are seeing the fruits of the labor and still throwing them under the bridge.

Doubt it. Holzer will not get better sitting in the press box.

Yeah, if he's put in the right situation, watch out!

He looked much better under Carlyle. I wish he'd have been given a better shake this season and maybe next!

Otherwise between Connolly at $4.75 mil and Komisarek at $4.25 mil playing in the AHL and counting against Leafs cap its truly handcuffing Nonis' hands on improving the team for a potential playoff run. Complete waste of cap space and money to the Leafs.

Nonis continues to clean house in year 1 of his tenure, and more "addition by subtraction" improvement for the Leafs.
Even Komi going to the Marlies frees up a bit of cap space. On the Leafs, his full cap hit counts against the cap; on the Marlies, all but $900,000 counts against the cap. Of course, even without the Komi move, the Leafs had $7.5M in cap space.

You're nuts if you think Komisarek would do damage if he played against the Leafs. This is just a typical case of grass being greener on the other side. Now that we don't have Komi, we want him

The guy makes 4.5m a year for Christ's sake and people feel bad for him

Hallelujah.

only makes sense for mike to play and build himself sone FA value for when the leafs buy him out. Wouldn't have made much sense to refuse assignment.

I can see him thriving elsewhere, as Leafs luck would have it. But it's all good.

Only vowel left on the team is Orr. If he gets moved...BLOCKS? Nonis moved out the non building BLOCKS?

Reilly - Komisarek pairing?

Should do a good job teaching the kid the ropes and allowing him some breathing room at the AHL level, if he clears.

TSN: Leafs D Komisarek placed on waivers; waives no-movement clause

http://www.tsn.ca/story/?id=418640

Quote:
The Toronto Maple Leafs have placed Mike Komisarek on waivers.

TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger has also reported that Komisarek has waived his no-movement clause. If he is claimed by another NHL club he will report to his new team, otherwise he will report to the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League.

The 31-year old New York native has seen limited time on the team's blue line this season, appearing in just four games registering no points a plus-two rating and two penalty minutes.

A big-name free agent signing in 2009, Komisarek still has one more year remaining on his deal beyond this season at an average annual value of $4.5 million.

Originally selected by the Montreal Canadiens in the first round (seventh overall) at the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, Komisarek was allowed to leave town as an unrestricted free agent and opted to sign with the arch-rival Leafs.

In 519 career NHL games with the Canadiens and Leafs, Komisarek has scored 14 goals and 63 assists with a minus-15 rating.

An All-Star in his final season in Montreal, Komisarek has struggled to stay healthy under great expectations in Toronto.
