Leafs Sign Komarov

Jared Wickerham

The Maple Leafs have re-signed Leo Komarov.

Dave Nonis' trip to Finland worked, he signed Leo Komarov for $2.95M x 4 years. This strikes me as a lot of term and a lot of dollars for a guy who brought no offense in his last stint as a Leaf.

He's a fun pest and a fan favorite, but it's still not a great idea to commit so strongly to a bottom six player in term or dollars. Mason Raymond signed for around the same amount ($3.5M x 3) after scoring 19-25-44 last season. Komarov had 9 points in the shortened 42 game season on 7.8% shooting.

Pretty much sums it up. People will like watching him, but that doesn't mean he's a good signing at any price.

Komarov scored during his year in the KHL so hopefully the percentages turn in his favour and he can translate his puck possession strengths into actual points.
