Mike Komisarek for Tomas Kaberle?

All right, I’ll float this idea again, except I’m a little more serious this time:

How about we approach the Leafs and offer to take Mike Komisarek off their hands in return for offloading Tomas Kaberle on them? The contracts are virtually identical in terms of cap hit, dollars and term.


1) I can’t stand Tomas Kaberle.

2) We desperately need the skillset that Mike has, and don’t really need Mr. Kaberle’s, especially with Andrei Markov back next season, and Raphaël Diaz and Yannick Weber still on the roster.

3) With a clearly defined role, maybe Mike can approach the level of play he showed while he was here. He wouldn’t be the big acquisition who has to justify his big free agency bucks he currently is in TO, but rather the guy slotted as a #5 or #6 defensive defenceman, the big strong guy who clears the net and inspires respect for our goalie.

Trying to make lemonade out of a lemon.

Fire away.


  1. Komi dissed us in opting for the Laffs for an identical contract.... As much as I hate Kabby....Komi is no longer welcome in the Bell Centre....period

  2. If Trevor Timmins is such a good scouting director why did Ottawa kickour butts in the playoffs, and we sure arent winning with Pleks nd DD s our top two centers.
