I can't believe Bergervin isnt all over this. We have abundance of (small) forwards and we lack a good defenceman.
Doesn't the signing of Murray more or less make going after someone like Klesla redundant (regardless of my opinion that Klesla is way better than Murray is)? Don't think Michalek or Morris will waive their NTCs to go to the Habs either.
Here's the thing; Nonis isn't an idiot. If there wasn't a plan in place to get both guys signed then he would have complienced JML instead of Komi. Check back in a month and let's see where we all stand. This goes for you and Castle from Victoria.
Using a compliance on Liles and a regular buyout on Komisarek would be beneficial down the line (3-4-5-6 years from now).
But it would have meant even less cap space this year and next.
