Komisarek wanted to be a Bruin?

Quote:
The biggest surprise among the Canadian has just been this big defender's decision to turn back to the organization. He was right. But the reality is that Toronto was not his choice. He has done everything to convince the Bruins the first of July, but the formation of Boston has not budged because his demands were too high. Eventually he accepted a 5-year contract that will bring him $ 22 500 000. He had reason to look toward Boston. But knowing that Boston would not be in the race, Montreal would have been a more logical choice, especially in the short term. Time will tell if he was right.
Don't really know what to think of this to be honest. Not sure how much of it is true either.

It's not surprising. He's an American guy and the Bruins are/were a 1st place team.

Many players don't get to sign with their #1 choice.

I understand him wanting to go there, but I'm not sure how he thought it'd be possible or how hard he pushed. I read he "begged" on the Bruins board, but I don't see it. Probably guaged interest, asked for an extra push there, and settled with us. Does make me wonder if he really just wanted to stick it to the Habs though (assuming the article is true). From a Hab to a Bruin or Leaf really stings.

Well, there's been many a player who's first choice was to play with the Leafs, but after settling elsewhere, have done just fine.

This really is a non-issue, as far as I'm concerned.

Well we did just steal their best forward so I can understand why they are a little bitter.

Bad translation. We say in Quebec "Le diable est aux vaches" when things aren't going well. It's pretty stupid to write the devil is in the cows because it doesn't mean anything in english.

He may have wanted to go there, but Derek Morris for $3.3 is a better deal then Komisarek for $4.5.

I don't see why this would bother anyone, even if it were true.

If anything, it signifies that Komisarek has no risidual loyalty to the franchise that raised him - being willing to sign with two of Montreal's biggest rivals. At worst, he's indifferent to his former team; at best, he has some animosity towards them and would like to play an instrumental role in their downfall.

With the way last season dramatically played out in Montreal, such speculation isn't entirely outside the realm of reason.

It's close, though. =P

Just sayin, can't really call a Leafs fan out on over-exagerating something when the thread I got this from on the B's board stunk of over-exageration.

Not difficult to see the motivation for this one.

It doesn't seem likely to me that Komisarek (and his agent) were that ignorant of Boston's snug relationship with the salary cap.

I think both deals are pretty awful for Boston considering it made them lose their leading goalscorer. "Contending" teams don't trade for picks.

Interesting article. But as a Leaf fan I really don't care what his first choice was if this article is true, he signed with the Leafs so it's not like he was forced to play here. Who wouldn't want to play in Boston, they're a very good team. Sounds like sour grapes from a Habs reporter trying to stir up controversy.

Not even the guys saying that Komi isn't worth even $1.7 million?

It would also seem that Morris (the PMD who hasn't cracked 30 points since 02/03) is clearly and obviously better than Komi.
