Mike Komisarek Statistics & Scouting Report
Mike Komisarek Scouting Report by Gus Katsaros and Ryan Dadoun
The former Canadiens first round selection in 2001 (7th overall) continued his Leafs career by missing a number of games with a broken arm (21) and then struggling to get back into the lineup after returning to health. The West Islip, New York native found himself in the press box for most of February, coincidentally during the period of collapse that saw bench boss Ron Wilson removed from duty. He became a healthy scratch late in the season as well under new bench boss Randy Carlyle. Standing at six-foot-four, 243-pounds, â€˜Komiâ€™ has a wide wingspan and aggressive nature. Heâ€™s always looking to initiate contact, sometimes to the point of positional abandonment, and is more content taking out a player out heavily than simply impeding his motion. Heâ€™s a lumbering and slow skater, inelegant in pivots and turns, making him somewhat predictable when heâ€™s full steam trying to bash his way through opposing rushers. The inability to handle speedier forwards, coupled with below average agility and lateral movement, make him a liability if heâ€™s not applying physical pressure. He could benefit from becoming a steady crease presence in the mold of former Leafs blueliner Hal Gill, staying close to the net and bashing bodies and clearing rebounds. Heâ€™s on the books for another two seasons, with a $4.5 million dollar cap hit, but makes $3.5 million in actual salary, making a trade to another team a possibility.
