If guys like Commodore, Orpik and Regher get 3 750 000-4 000 000$ a season.
Komisarek should get maximum 4 500 000 a season$
No way Komisarek is worth 1 000 000 to 2 000 000 more than those guys!!!
And i love Komi.
To hell with company policy, get him signed now Bob. Yes Komisarek enjoys Montreal, but Gainey is playing with fire if he waits until the summer. They should have got the deal done when Komisarek missed his 4 weeks.
I'm arguing with my friend right now about Komisarek's value this July... How much do you think that he will get on the open market?
I could see a team being willing to overpay for him, maybe upwards of 7$mil a season. I don't see him taking that though, I see him taking 4-4.5 to stay here and win some cups. I think next season will truly be a year where we'll sign a couple 1 year paycut deals as well (kovalev/lang/tang) any UFA really who is good, and we'll go for yet another cup run
He would make $3 million his first year, 3.25 million his second, 3.5 million his third and 4 million in his final year of the contract. That is a good contract for a guy his age. He gets the money he is worth right now and in 3 years time, he will be making the money he will be worth then.
-Its a big raise for him.
-He gets to stay in Montreal where he wants to stay.
-He gets a long term deal
-When this contract is up, thats when he'll make the big money.
