the thing about comrie is that it is more than just points that set his value. This is a young man who didn't back off the challenge of being a 1st line centre in his first full year in the nhl ( in his hometown ). Most kids would have froze or choked on that. It is not like minny where the fans are happy if you show up. IN edm, they demand a winner.

He was born a millionaire but yet managed to make the nhl as a 5'9" player. That tells me he has guts to spare. At any time during his hockey career, he could have given up and gone home to daddy's millions. IMO, it is much harder for a rich kid to succeed in sports than it is for a ghetto black kid because the rich kid has alternatives.

He has put up better numbers than havlat and very close to gaborik. IMO, he will end up being better than gaborik because he will never quit trying. That is his trade value.
