The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed Mike Komisarek to a 5 year, 22.5 Million contract.

Komisarek leaves the Habs for their bitter rivals in the Big Smoke. Wanting the opportunity to play for US Olympic Head Coach Ron Wilson and GM Brian Burke, Komi has signed on to guard the crease in Toronto. Known for his tough, physical play, Mike is coming off a tough year which included a bum shoulder and humiliation at the hands of Milan Lucic. Look for Komisarek to provide a steady defensive presence on the revamped Leafs blueline.

Fantasy Outlook:  Komisarek is never going to put up huge fantasy points. While he skates well and moves the puck better then pundits credit him, he is best when playing a simple, chip the puck out game. He should also see his PIMs drop as he will no longer be the sheriff of a small Montreal team and is surrounded by a newly revamped, truculent Leafs line-up . This reduces his limited fantasy value even more. Look to draft Komi in the late rounds of roto leagues that reward penalties/hits etc. 

Fearless Forecast: 80GP, 3G, 18A, 21P, 90 PIMS
