When he said "I wanna come back and take a leadership role and prove myself" before the season, that equated to be what you guys seem to want to hear, according to me.
I think Comrie's biggest problem with the fans right now is the way Ryan Smyth was talking during his contract negotiations. Smyth stated (many times I might add) how much he wanted to stay in Edmonton and the fact that he loves the Oilers. Fans want to hear the same thing from Comrie IMO.

Not saying it's right or wrong, it's just my perception of why Edmonton is slowing starting to turn on Comrie.
