Thoughts on Mike Comrie

22 posts in this topic

I haven't really heard much on this board about Mike Comrie. Before going to Ottawa he seemed like he had some real skill on a terrible Islanders team. Do you think he could fill the 2nd line center vacancy?

and I don't need Hillary Duff "songs" added to our crappy stoppage songs list :P

Comrie isn't a guy Lou wants around. He has a bad attitude, he may put up points but he won't make a difference on this team. He probably would take a 2 year deal which is in the Devils range but he wouldn't produce as much as he is needed to.

I don't think comrie would be a good fit on this team.

When you get booed off the Island... you should probably hang 'em up and start working on your resume.

I tell ya what, if it means running into Hillary Duff at games, I might not be entirely opposed to signing the guy.

1yr/1mil is a risk I'd take.

not on mike comrie. he's a lazy backchecker, everything i've read about him is negative, and he was never that good a player to begin with

Why not? We're risking Illka Pikawhoever. Maybe Comrie needs a little Lou like structure in his life.

Agreed. He just isn't very good. Ottawa traded for him this past year for the purpose of re-signing him in the off-season, and he just crapped the bed so poorly that Murray wants nothing to do with him. 10 goals last year and 17 assists in just 63 games. Pretty bad. Especially when points is the only thing he has to offer.

I can't see him taking a 1 year - $1 million contract. That would be a hard pill to swallow. Comrie just finished making 4 million a year. He's used to living a certain lifestyle with his superstar girlfriend. Although, I don't know what choice he has to be honest.

But I'd be shocked if Lou went near him.

I would take him purely because he is a short term player, and I think Lou doesn't mind signing players to short term deals with the exception if Zubrus, who I don't get why he gave him a 6 year deal. I'd take him for 2 years/$4 million.

I am not too worried as Lou would never sign this type of "Team is second to me" type of player.

There is a reason no one wants him.

Exactly, I also might be inclined to goto more games and sit in premium seats.

He's a jerk. Why not just sign Hilary and get the milk for free?

Skillfull offensively, bit of a nut case, slightly larger than Gio, no D. Nah! I'd pass.

she's afraid to go into corners, and her faceoff % is in the toilet. she does carry on a conversation however.
