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?

Pay homage to the INCREDIBLE scoring goalie!!!! :-)

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease


CRASHER's official list of high stick victims from this forum:
gionta182, devilsfan26 .... WHO'S NEXT??

2005 Fantasy Football League Champion... Bow to my Football knowledge !!!!!!

2003-04 NJDevs.com winner of the Masterton Award for Dedication to the Devils(still proud of that one !)

4, Four (!?!?) Time (2005-2008) NJDevs.com winner of the Whoever the damn Award for the funniest poster in the land is named after...(geesh... post pressure, but I seem ok with it!)
TWO TIME (2005, 2006) Award Winner and the man who can show Jeremy Roenick what a REAL loudmouth is all about.... hell this mouth roars SO loud, they retired the DAMN AWARD!!!! But how do you be emotional about an award for being most emotional when you're sharing it?

2008 NJDevs Stanley Cup Winner for best overall poster... where's my damn ring?

June 6, 2007... the NHL dies just a little bit.....

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.

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

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.
