key points:

The 31-year-old, who has no points in four games for Toronto this season, has a modified no-trade clause. He is in the fourth season of a five-year, $22.5 million contract, with an annual cap hit of $4.5 million.

Komisarek commented on the difficulty of watching games from the press box.
"You want to play, you want to contribute, that's the biggest thing. You don't want to be a passenger," explained Komisarek. "You want to be helping the team out and I can just worry about what I can control and that's come to the rink and keep a positive attitude and sure as well got to be ready if an opportunity comes when and where that it is who knows.

what do you think?

No room for him at the Inn. Our D is just fine. Can he play power forward? That is what we need. 3 of them please.

If we can trade Sammy for Komi I would say yes. He's a big right hand shot who can hit and block the shots.. we could use him

Don't know much about him but having another right handed man couldn't hurt. Could also solve our backlog of forwards. Then trade White and a pick for a second line forward and we could make a good run.

With Holland's previous trade record of idiocy, the Leafs wouldn't take anything less than another top pick.

i.e. Quincey.

Are you flipping insane???

Cap hit is too high if we have to swallow that.

Yep, He's overpaid. They can buy out another lame-ass Burke contract.

Won't happen....with Detroit and Toronto joining the same division next season, this is the same situation as Columbus refusing to deal with Detroit...

Besides, our guys are gelling right now, pretty well. Add Danny Dekeyser and our D will rock into next season...I still don't like Q, but that's me, he is at least playing pretty solid right now, I can say the same for Kindl. I know Cola is on the roster next season but put him on waivers after training camp...

Kronwall - Ericsson

Quincey - Smith

Dekeyser - Lashoff

Kindl (Huskins for depth)

Insane? Nope. Our D is doing just fine. We don't need another 30+ D man that can't score anymore and that has a big contract. Just don't see where he would be an upgrade in anyway. Yes he is RH and we could use 2 of those, but he isn't what we need.

...but maybe a change of scenery....just kidding!

I agree with you all...no thanks. Not that he sucks, but our D is starting to gell fairly well right now. Why change it? Let these guys grow together...I know I was all over the get rid of Q and K bandwagon, most the time I was the driver, but it seems the more they play together, the less I dislike them....like I said above, add Dekeyser for the playoffs and then next year go with what I wrote above...re-sign Kindl and Huskins to shuffle in and out of the #6 spot and injuries...

Kind of like when Red Kelly went to the Leafs and became a great forward?

Keeping what we have isn't what's needed either

The guy was damn good as a Hab, but you cannot say that at all while a Maple Leaf.

Dunno if we're that desperate to take on his bloated contract; why be nice to a rival club?

Our D is fine. 6 good ones without Huskins: Kronwall, Ericsson, Smith, Quincey, lashoff, and Kindl. More on the way: Dekeyser, Nicastro, Sproul, Oullett, De Haas, and marchenko. That is 12, all under 30 but Kronwall, all 6-1+ other than Kronwall. 3 of them are RH: Nicastro, Sproul, and marchenko. D is the deepest position in the organization. We don't need a broken down guy like mike k.

:lol: I love and share in your confidence that Dekeyser will be a Red Wing! Get it done Kenny!

Komisarek couldn't even crack the Leafs' roster when it was full of scrubs. His was another terrible Burke contract. He's awful, especially for the price he comes at.

Yikes @ people who don't know a thing about Komisarek. Go ask Maple Leafs fans just how good he is at hockey.

Completely off base. Toronto would trade Komisarek for nothing, and would be thrilled to have gotten it done. Assuming he isn't their amnesty buyout this summer, he's nothing but a $4.5m albatross.

He does suck, a fact that any Leafs fan would attest to.

And signing an overpaid, underperforming defenseman is what's needed? Komisarek is not a match for any defenseman currently on the roster.

Komisarek was never an "offensive" guy while a Hab - just that the massive contract that Burke gave him led many fans thinking he could offer more, but they were wrong...He was a solid defensive minded/shot blocking Dman while in Montreal, and truth be told I could never figure out why he left (he was well liked, and if I remember correctly they offered almost as much as the Leafs).

Komisarek might've remained a respectable 2nd pairing Dman had he not left the Habs.

Agreed.

Hope he can find a place to play. Mark Fraser took his spot and hasn't looked back. Who would be willing to take his contract? Yikes.

There's a reason the Maple Leafs haven't been playing him. He's not good.

Ah...there it is. He's big, but he's slow and terrible with the puck. If you want WAYYY more bonehead penalties though, he's your guy. He's worse than our current healthy scratch White.
