Islander's will pick him up they love our sloppy 2nds, and they also love guys with bad contracts

Could be interesting to see a Reilly-Komisarek pairing.

Could give the kid lots of confidence out on the ice knowing he's got a gritty vet to make sure he doesn't get run.

On another note, I wouldn't mind seeing Reilly along side a more mobile defender like Paul Ranger.

Poor guy. Was hoping he would get claimed. Best of luck on the Marlies, Komi.

For FREE was simply too high a price for anyone to pay based on that contract of his.

Now Marlies should be primed for a Calder Cup, because with Komi @ $4.25 mil and Connolly @ $4.75 mil those 2 players alone give the Marlies the likely the highest AHL payroll.

Unfortunately under the new Cap CBA however those contracts are still counting against the Leafs cap, so mistakes even those buried in the minors can no longer be covered up. GM's are therefore going to have to be a lot smarter then in the past as a result or it will cripple your NHL team.

Komi is heading for a compliance buyout and NO CAP hit, so its only this year that Leafs are negatively effected by his contract.

I'm not convinced that Komi won't be traded.

Yes he cleared waivers but there might be a team interested in him once he gets games under his belt, but will want to send us some cap hit back in another player.

I agree, I bet other teams might have offered bad contract(s) in return, but Nonis was wise enough not to accept them.

He is trying to get rid of bad contracts and dead weight and not interested in adding more. IMO

Because of the get out of jail free compliance opportunity in the summer for Komisarek he likely feels better off simply playing him to go away then even consider eating some of his salary for next year and having him count against the Cap.

The new CBA compliance buyout couldn't have come at a better time for Nonis to be able to correct past mistakes.

I am not surprised at all. If someone wanted a pylon on defense they'd get one from the store for pocket change. I'm not even kidding, and I never use the term pylon loosely but that is exactly what Komi is. Nice guy though, I guess we should be playing him for that reason alone?

And I really, really hope leaf fans remember this before the next time they start clamoring for the leafs to sign a "physical defensive defenseman".

why do you keep calling it a favor? Favor would imply DN did this despite not wanting to and there is no evidence of that. Maybe he has wanted to send Mike down for a month but couldn't because of the NMC? Maybe Mike did the favor?

Doubtful. Some Leafs fans now want Komisarek because he is no longer with the team. Talk about grass-greener-on-the-other-side-syndrome.

to be fair, some wanted him in all this year based on the 4 games he did play. or at least to be given a shot this year.

I think he should have been given a shot at some point. there are a lot of holes in the D the past few weeks. Could he help? don't know. but as MESS likes to quote often (but not when it doesn't fit the agenda) doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is the definition of insanity.
