We’re mere hours away from the free agent frenzy that is July 1st and Mike Komisarek’s agent has announced that Mike will “test the waters” on the market tomorrow. The Canadiens have yet to approach Komisarek with a deal but agent Matt Keater says that he does remain interested in re-signing with the Habs.
I was a big Komi fan for a while but, while I understand that last season’s blunders were due in part to injury, he just doesn’t seem worth the cash to me. A big heart and a solid defenseman but he has no puck-movement skills and remains completely one-dimensional.
Eklund and others are suggesting Boston is interested (Komi and Lucic will have to make up) but they don’t currently have the cap space without making some additional moves.
