Comrie? We don't need no stinkin' Comrie...
I started the morning with a look at Spector today and he had an entry referencing comments made by the Arlington Heights Daily Herald's Tim Sassone. The close of passage includes a line about the 'Canes coveting Mike Comrie. I don't get this rumor for a variety of reasons.
- The lidless eye is flying right now and really don't need a guy straight out of Gretzky's doghouse.
- We are fat at center with Staal, Roddy, Cullen, and Kevyn doing just fine thanks (hell, lumbering ole' Vasicek can't lock down any time at center as it is).
- Comrie's track record of acrimonious relations with management make him a potential clubhouse nightmare.
- Comrie is making $1.7 mil-that would make him the 5th highest paid player on this squad above red-hot players like Staal, Cullen, Cole, and alternate captains Adams and Wesley.
All that being said, the chance to get Comrie for some deal involving dead wood Vrbata and a Phx commitment to eat some salary is enticing.
