Will Komisarek be expected to fight next year?

With Langdon and Quintal gone, they really don't have anyone to do the dirty work. I think that Komo could be pretty effective, the way Zdeno Chara was for the Islanders and Ottawa. Mike seemed to enjoy the challenge when he first came up in 2003, and went at it with a few heavies.

Unfortunately, as things stand right now, Komi is one of the few players on the current roster who has the size and demeanor to fight. I would rather see him in a supporting tough guy role rather than what he may be forced into.

I don't think he is expected to, but I think he will be a willing participant when needed.

You'll see him, rivet and souray(probably) share the load. Personally they need at least one willing enforcer who can go, and they dont have that anymore.
Our Defense is big and strong enough that they can take care of themselves, and stick up for teammates when they have to.
But it'd be nice to have a patrolman out there at times.

It may be the thing to get him involved. It seemed like Komisarek played his best when he was involved in physical confrontations. It gave him more confidence.

They very much go hand in hand. As he sees that he can handle NHL players in this sense, he will gain confidence, which will increase his involvement. I think he will be encouraged to get involved more, not necessarily in fights, but his physical play as a whole, during play and after whistles. Basically, I think it is experience, but I don't think he has the demeanor of a fighter, like I said more of a willing participant when called about, thus he won't ne relied on to fight, maybe more simply presence of someone who will.

I think he said it himself, the physical part of his game will come with experience- he doesn't want to get caught out of position and cost his team because he went for the big hit (or something to that affect). And I say it's coming a long just fine.

On the topic of Komi, I was wondering... Anyone got any idea how hard his shot is?

In today's hockey, you're main enforcer should always be a forward, always. This is something the Habs have faailed to address often. Ok, they have forward enforcers but they are of embarassing quality most often. The guys with talent+fighting abilities have mostly been Ds.

You just can't have that. You need a talented forward who fights, IMO.

im sure that bob gainey will choose a tough guy at the waiver draft next season like he did last year with langdon...

thats probably the reason why montreal didnt sign him... because they wouldnt be able to protect him at the waiver draft... but will the devils really protect him ????

Funny how the game changes, years ago, your tough guy was often your 5th D man[they didn't dress 6 in those days]. You're bang on though, you can't afford to leave a D man on the bench that can't play much, whereas a 4th liner can be hidden if necessary. I think it's important for the message to be out there that Komi,Rivet,Souray and co. are willing combatants, but it's also important that they only do so when absolutely necessary. Souray in particular let his temper or willingness to step in for a teammate get him in trouble a bit last season. If you get known for this you become a target.

Agreed, hope he's not forced into but i'm sure he'd be willing to drop them now and then when needed to.

I think BG has proved that there are perfectly good enforcers, capable stepping in for 50-60 games, that most definitely will be available come the waiver draft. I assume he'll wait until then. Conceivably, He could end up re-selecting Langdon, who knows?

Exactly, it's July 7th. Still plenty of time to acquire an enforcer.

In my opinion, we will pick a goon in the waiver draft like we did last year. My main candidate is Andre Roy.

yeah, i think roy would be a great addition - he actually has hockey skills and can play a regular shift. his only downfall is that he's undisciplined, but i think he could form a great 4th line with begin and ward.

Roy ain't that great a fighter though. And he's a hell of alot undisciplined. Not too smart. A punk too. I wouldn't want him.

He's actually not a bad fighter at all, but his discipline has been a problem.

Roy got dropped in a fight with Komo earlier in the season.
Roy is a looser.
Todd Fedoruk is my wish for the Habs tough guy.

I wonder what Komisarek will come to camp at, size wise? The last couple of years he was directed to lose weight because he was up to 255 when he was drafted, and he cut back to 240. But as he matures, he should most of that back on in muscle mass. I would think that he would be around 250 this year.
