Komisarek played 16:39 in his 45 games, which is 3rd pairing minutes to go along with his 5 points and -13. If this trade is made, I don't think he gets a 2nd pairing role on the Stars, and winds up instead in a 3rd pair/7th D role.

I expect Fistric to once again be a 3rd pair guy, and I expect Dillon to play with him in that role. Adding Komisarek at the expense of Robidas puts a 3rd pair guy (Komisarek or Fistric) in a 2nd pairing role, and a straight swap of defensemen all but ensures that Benn is in the AHL next season.

Overall this trade is Robidas in exchange for somebody else's Adam Pardy.
Robidas is going to play #1 minutes as long as he's here, I thought that was already established.

As I said, I wouldn't do it, but it's a decent idea.

Robidas isn't in the way of Dillon like Komisarek would be. I have no problem trading Robidas, but trading him for a forward makes much more sense than a 6/7 defenseman.
