Anyone wondering if Komisarek can return to MTL form?

People kept saying before we signed him that he hasn't been the same player since Lucic hurt him and I think they're right. I haven't seen the Komisarek from his days playing in Montreal.

Honestly I think he reaggravated his shoulder during preseason, he looked great against Ottawa in preseason then the next game he had that awkward hit and they were talking about his shoulder and he suddenly stopped being less physical, got in a fight later on and then the season starts and his physicality rarely shows.

This is his year imo, if he wants to stay here he needs to step up the game and hopefully his shoulder is 100% it's do-or-die for him and being only 29 he knows 2 more years of 4.5M isn't exactly going to set him for life and getting an NHL gig will be hard after the atrocious last couple seasons.

Our best shot at having him revert to his Montreal ways is to pair him with a puck mover like Liles.

That may just be his best shift as a Maple Leaf. I'm still hoping he can return to form because if he can, he'll be an incredible asset and just a piece of one of the better defences in the East. I'm not overly optimistic though. I don't think the situation has been ideal for him. Having to live up to a big contract, injuries hitting him and horrible goaltending at times.
best shift? the 4 seconds of play they showed?

Like to see Komi rebound but really think he needs a move to do so.

To be honest, I don't think Komi reached his top-form even with the Habs. I think his best days are still ahead of him and I hope they're with the Leafs. It's just the fact that he signed such a huge contract with the team that makes it hard to justify having such a talented and expensive bottom-pairing defenceman.

I'm not ready to rule him out just yet, he has the ability steal back his slot from Gunnar or Aulie this year.

At the end of the day, we might just be looking at a Hal Gill+.
Solid Defensive defenceman who other fans seem to appreciate more than ours.

Forget MTL Komisarek, I'm just wondering if he can get back to top 4 form. He's certainly paid to be that type of player.

Can Komisarek turn it around? Sure, but its not going to happen here in Toronto. He was getting 8-10 minutes a game at the end of last season so its obvious Coach Wilson doesn't trust him anymore. He needs to go somewhere that will give him minutes and a fresh start, it didn't work out here for whatever reason. I think both the Leafs and Komisarek would welcome a change.

Man watching that video is like a Komisarek night and day.

If he returns to form, holy ISH! I saw signs of improvement during the WC under Flash, so who knows, maybe he'll work magic with him.

It's hard to play the style of hockey he played when you have a surgery like that. One of the reasons why players become injury prone is because they are subconsciously protecting that injured place and putting their bodies into a lot of awkward positions and injuring some other part of their body. Komi is still in his prime and can still find his old game. It's just a matter of time.

I thought he looked decent at the WC. With an off season under his belt I wouldn't be surprised if he does, if that is the case were going to have lots of depth at defense.

Nice one. Yeah, I'm not expecting much from Komisarek. Hopefully he's shipped out of town before the season starts.

I highly doubt it. Although I have to admit I have some kind of grudge against Komisarek, so i'm a bit bias.

Komi is not a bad d-man. I still believe he can return to his top four d status, just not with Toronto. Too much depth, yo. Horrible cap hit as well. Ship him off to Long Island please and thanks!

don't know if he can or not but if he does return to form i honestly feel like we have one of the deepest D's in the league. Although Buffalo is looking pretty sick too.

Sure hope he does as I think he is a great guy and I'm truly pulling for him.

When the Leafs finally get into the playoffs, Komisarek will be the type of player we need: a steady shut down defenceman that will crush some people, get the team and home crowd going, which is important in the playoffs

Not to mention his leadership qualities will be important for a team that is the youngest in the NHL

If the Leafs go on a playoff run, I'll bet that Komisarek will be a big part of the run

I still think this guy can bounce back. He's proven that he can be a big strong shut down type defenseman. I don't know what exactly has gone wrong during his past few years... but I hope he turns it around.

So that is why we let him walk when he wanted to much money

Plus Besides the Gomez deal when did we ever do that ?

I believe he can, and I think the reason why he hasnt yet is two fold.

1) He suffered his shoulder injury, preventing him from gaining top form.

2) He became apart of a team that was/is re-building. Once this team matures Komi will once start playing like he did in Montreal. I alo believe Komi will be a great shutdown D in the playoffs, when we make them.
