Komisarek On His Time With The Leafs

from TSN,

Speaking with Bryan Hayes and Jeff O'Neill on Leafs Lunch, Tuesday on TSN 1050, Komisarek said he does not regret the decision to come to Toronto, but wished things would have played out differently.

"It was definitely a learning experience, but I think I'm better for it today – going through those challenges, those ups and downs the last couple of years," Komisarek said. "…And I'm looking to have a fresh start in Carolina and bouncing back."

The 31-year-old, who had the final year on his five-year, $22.5 million contract bought out by the Leafs on July 2, said that things seemed to snowball right from the outset of his time in Toronto and he was never able to get comfortable in his surroundings.

"I never got out on the right foot (winning just one of the first 13 games)…and it never caught on from there, then the media starts getting on you and the fans start getting on you," Komisarek said. "But looking back on that decision, this is the place where I wanted to come and turn things around and get into the playoffs and be a key part of it and it didn't work out."
