When the 11 o’clock news comes on Thursday night, Mike Komisarek’s career as a Maple Leaf will be turned off.

That’s the hour NHL teams can officially put in motion one or both of their compliance buyouts — exactly two days after the Stanley Cup final ends — under the new CBA rules.

There’s no urgency on the club’s part to dump the big defenceman right at 11:01, but he became the prime candidate to be cashed out at season’s end and reports the past few days make the move a formality.
