    Kovalev may be new captain with a 6 to 7 million dollar raise

    http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=280075

    Personally I don't think Kovalev is worth that coin, and Homosarek is really not worth more than 4 million.

    This from a russian source though??

    From what I understand, the Russian media adores rumors about North American hockey teams. Any report coming out of Russiaregarding NHL contract talks shouldn’t be taken all that seriously.  That said, I hope what is reported is true - that Montreal is considering Komi's demand for 6 Mill...  and I hope they're dumb enough to pay it.

    Komasarek wants 6 million a year? Is he on drugs? After the playoffs he just had he should hold on to that 4 million contract for dear life!

    And why would Kovalev just sign a one year deal? Doesnt make any sence. From what I heard Montreal is going to make a serious run at David Krejci

    The Montreal Canadiens are on the fast track to the AHL, where they will join their neighbors the Toronto Maple leafs. 6 Million for a guy who takes off weekends in mid-season, on a team that finished in 8th place? Komisarek is awful too!

    Did anybody else see that Sports Illustrated just named the 12 most rugged players and number 12 was Komisarek!  I thought this was a joke.

    Sports Illustrated and ESPN are jokes, most definitely when it comes to the NHL.

    Please...if Komisarek ends up a Bruin, suddenly he'd be the most feared D-man since Stevens in the eyes of the Black-n-Gold myopians.

    Not worth 6 mil, but certainly a guy who the Bruins could use on their blueline, if they could find a way to do it at a reasonable cost.

    I used to look at Komisarek as a player I would have like to see in a Bruins uniform. However, after watching him this year, I have completely changed my view on him.

    This is not because of the cheap altercations with Lucic, but because he has become a heartless, lazy and scared player. His hockey sense has disappeared and it looks like he is too afraid to get himself into situations where he could be an effective contributor.

    Sure they could use him, maybe as a 4th defensemen. Please....he is no Stevens or even close to Mark Stuart for that matter.  He is a joke on a bad team. He was an embarrasment to the Habs in the post season. 12th most rugged? LOL  Maybe 12th on his team. Bruins fans would like him taking Montadors place at 2M, I know that.

    If he was Boston's 4th defenceman (and he could well be), you KNOW the boards here would be talking about the depth of the Bruins defence, and how Komisarek adds a great physical presence, and how the Habs will be dead without him.

    It sure wouldn't be "Homosarik's a joke and an embarassment" if he ends up signing in Boston, would it? He'd be a "commanding physical presence that will make the Bruins defence even more punishing". The ridiculous "not close to Mark Stuart" talk would be over, that's for sure.

    2 mil won't get it done, though. Have to be at least 4--not many players, especially ones who are 27, take pay cuts.

    Kenndy97, Komisarek's play really dipped this year. I m from Montreal and many fans and reporters say it too. In my opinion he would almost be overpaid at 4 mil. a year. His skating isn't great , he's not an offence threat from the D at all , blocking a few shots and making some hits doesn't warrant a big contract.

    The Bruins I think could use a good fast puck moving defenceman not a Komosarek type

    Being from Montreal doesn't make you any more or less knowledgable than anyone else. Clearly, Komisarek did indeed have a disappointing year. But he didn't all of a sudden become a 3rd pairing defenceman in the NHL. He did not play like a top pairing guy last year, but he's a 2nd-unit defenceman on all but the highest quality NHL teams.

    You know as well as I do that his taking a pay cut (with a new organization especially) is incredibly unlikely, to the point of being unrealistic to even suggest.

    Kennedy97,
    no way Komisarek will take a 4mill a year contract.  He's already refused one from the Habs.  He's asking for 5.5 so he gets not lower than 5mill.
    The answer to this debate,  NO WAY !  WE DON'T NEED a D like him for 5mill , I say Stuart is as good if not better. For sure he's a much better skater and pugilist over Komisarek.

    Being a long time bruin fan, I hope the habs sign Kovalev to a long term deal close to 7 mil. and make him captain. He's a part time player and a cancer. How many captain quality players get told to go home for 2 games when your fighting for your playoff lives. Not to mention he has had several rifts with team management over the years. These are not leadership qualities. GO GAINEY GO.
