If you want to talk what *could* happen then I could say that someone could, offer a player for Komi + that is a D-Man that would takeover his minutes and be just as effective or better (or marginally less) for less $.

I mean if you want to talk about what COULD happen then the possibilities are endless really. My point is that right now as a 7th D-Man he is more of an asset for a trade than an integral player of the D-Core. If you think otherwise then we just don't see eye-to-eye.

Komisarek (again, if someone wants him)
One of our young defenders (Gardiner/Gunnarsson)
Kadri/Colborne

Would anyone be inclined to make a deal around something like Grabovski + Kadri + Komisarek + 1st for Stastny + prospect (like Tyson Barrie?) and then making a run at Zach Parise next offseason?
Lombardi isn't even playing.

Franson is a bottom pairing defender.

Liles is a worse version of Kaberle.

Connolly hasn't played a full since for like a decade.

I would rather have any of the guys you've listed over any of these new signings.

It is much more likely that we have a d-man injured than it is for us to trade a 4.5 mil player w 3 years remaining that is probably worth 2 mil for anything that would improve the team.

Why not let this team play a few games together before deciding who is expendable !

One D-man sure...two is less likely BUT regardless of that fact, there are teams with all kinds if different issues that could trade for Komi and it be worth our while. Did you ever think someone would take Lebda? Different situation sure, but that doesn't mean there isn't a team willing to make the trade where we would benefit. Teams are still trying to reach the cap floor or are weak on D and willing to pay for Komi. Besides, it's only this year Komi gets paid over his cap hit, after that he gets paid under.

Komisarek is expendable but it's only because of depth.

Problem is, who is your odd man out?

Phaneuf/Aulie
Schenn/Liles
Gunner/Franson

Komi....and you still have Lashoff and Gardiner not to far off.

Oh...so we should have gotten Richards (even though he clearly didn't want to be here)
Bogo or Weber should easily be gotten.
How about Stamkos or Stastny???

Time for a reality check my good man: Burke HAS improved the team at very little cost. Not all players can be had.

Komi's BIG contract and little performance level would seem to make his contract difficult to trade.

But -- -- he can be "fingered" to the Marlies.
