In response to Not-A-Shot's comment:
I don't hate Kessel, Grabovski, Phaneuf or Komisarek.
I really don't understand why people dislike Komisarek. He plays hard and isn't afraid to fight.
Komisarek is death to a team.
NAS, I don't think you watched the Leafs enough. During the trade pending years I watched them a lot. He's a game changer in the bad way. He can deflate the team with a totally idiotic penalty or something stupid at the perfectly wrong time
Watch this play, he missed the hit, ok it happens, but then notice how he liesurely skates back to the crease and isn't paying attention. And the puck bounces off his head and in.
Another fluke thing that you could dismiss, but look at this warmup and Komi is clearly not with the program when he collides with Phaneuf
My high school coach would have benched me for this - passing the puck in front of your own net? Isn't that one of the cardinal rules?
He tries too hard to kill guys on his hits and very frequently gets his elbows up and/or crosschecks. Overly aggressive at the wrong times. And he's an idiot which is his biggest problem, too many poor decisions.
Note this play where he knocks someone over the boards (ok, good), but then notice how he tries to engage the guy once he's over the boards.
Again, you could dismiss this but the issue is he always does this. Remember when he was with the Habs and cross checked Lucic to the face? how stupid was that? 4-1 and 7+ mins left in the game?
