    No we do not miss him at all.
    Bringing in Clarkson and Bolland is too cool. They better.
    Komarov is a fine player but not as good as these guys. They make us better.

    Now that Clarkson is suspended the first 10 games, that there is the only place we (could) be missing komarov. But it won't happen ether. There are others, like McLaren, Orr, Ashton etc. They can play those dirty ten games.
    After that Clarkson will murder again.

    Would much rather give his old spot to Ashton.

    Carter's got more upside (2nd/3rd line PWF) and already brings more in terms of overall game (offense esp).

    No we cant. a bunch of scrub tough guys maybe, but theres only one komarov and youre totally kidding yourself if you think otherwise. He was actually probably the biggest loss this offseason

    He was a very good player for us. Just not good enough to break into an offensive role. I would have loved to have him on this team for many years. Does everything right + a great personality. I hope he comes back to the NHL. Great guy.

    I disagree.

    Komarov has hands... he just needed some time to acclimatize to the NHL game. I'd love to have him back... he could have been our brad marchand clone.

    :(

    So why did he go back to the KHL again?

    Would welcome him back!

    I think we will miss how he set the tone every night by just hitting everyone and anyone, Frattin will be missed for this too I loved how they battered Chara every shift that left Kessel some space but as others have said no one is irreplaceable

    I agree with this.

    He was actually pretty important to us in sticking in there. In a playoff his hard hitting high impact play really wears down opposition. They feel Komarov by game 4-5 believe me.

    I would take him back and play him as a 4th but then you have the curious case of our knuckles, we need at least one on there and Ashton looks good too.

    More ice time and bigger role.
    I get the feeling he wanted the "I did it and didn't look out of place" in his career folder when he retires.

    Leo is a very nice 4th liner and PKer, but you don't want him being a fulltime 3rd liner for your team, and defienitely don't want to pay him like a 3rd liner.

    I was going to say this. He isn't burning a year of RFA because he signed in another league. Leafs retain his rights for next season.

    Hopefully they come to their senses and offer him a $800K to $1M contract.

    I also loved the Captain Komarov twitter handle, not sure if that was his unofficial twitter account or who it was, but those were comedy gems.

    Especially the Marchand family photo.

    Don't really care that much to be honest. Thought he had more offensive talent than he actually does after hearing he played on the 1st line in the KHL with Ovechkin. 4th liners are not hard to replace.

    Great in his role. Problem is, he is just that; a role player. Meaning, it's not the end of the world. In a cap league like the NHL, 4th line forwards cannot demand the money he was asking.

    our penalty kill was the best it's been in nearly a decade and he was a huge part of that. This isn't a 4th line plugger. This guy was integral to our penalty kill and I think his presence will be greatly missed.

    I don't disagree that Mac was a big loss... but I feel we rebounded very well by picking up Raymond.

    Being that Mac isn't a center, I feel we might have lost a little playmaking but made up for it with a better defensive player.

    Raymond was faster but Mac very fast too, not much gained there.

    Hopefully Clarkson can provide near the same level of agitation with a much greater presence in front of the crease (and the appropriate production).

    I'm pretty sure you're wrong. He turns 27 in January and doesn't have a current NHL contract. That makes him a UFA.

    He had a great game on Sat. I get the feeling he's saving his best stuff for the playoffs.

    Love this guy!

    I never gave up on him, and neither should you.

    Go Leafs Go!

    Dang you must have been digging for this thread. A lot more positive vibes from this thread that's for sure.

    I think you're right, he's going to show his qualities in the playoffs in the role he's been given.
