A little too much and a little too long for what he provided last time he was here, but, if he can find a little more of the offence he had in the KHL, this will probably turn out to be a pretty reasonable deal.

Maybe get Komarov/ Holland/ Clarkson to hit and cycle the puck and wear teams down. All three of them can pick corners I think also.

I like the signing.  He brings grit and pain in the donkey attitude the Leafs lacked last season.

I think this signing is pretty bad. Komarov doesn't have the offensive ability to be worth the salary the Leafs paid him. It's like a mini-Clarkson move. An overpayment for someone with limited ability just because he's "tough to play against".

You are the first on this site who has the "balls to compare this with the  Clarkson signing".  Brave brave man

I said a mini-version of the Clarkson signing. Which it is. It's the same flawed logic by management.

When you compare the two after 10 games, you'll see why there is no comparison to the Clarkson deal. Leo will outperform Clarkson by miles.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

If it was just about offence, the Leafs would of made the playoffs.

I guess we will have to see. I am under the impression this will be a turn around year for Clarkson. IMO.

Leafs fans can only hope.  It can't get much worse for Clarkson, is the only way up?

I get what you're saying but, really, it's not.  Komorov is a Leafs draft pick, so presumably they've been monitoring his development.  He's attended training camps and played exhibition games.  He played a season with them, which, by most accounts, was a pretty good year.  And he's played at and succeeded at the international level.

All of this to say that I think the Leafs know Komorov a lot better than they would have known Clarkson at the time of his signing, which to me makes it a different type of deal.

Except that isn't really the "logic" used in either case. Clarkson got his money because the hope was he would contribute offensively. Komarov got his as a defensive forward. 3 million is more or less the free agent rate for an in demand penalty killer.

And if he pots 5 -10 goal, it is a bonus
