By casually comparing him to any other Oiler holdout you are damaging your perceived ability to contribute "informed" opinions.

Oh, and regarding what Comrie has or hasn't said; actions speak louder than words.


I agree completely. Comrie is not a ten year veteran, and quite simply doesn't have an ounce of credibility compared with Lowe.

If he signs, I'll be happy, and cheer for him. Period. But as for the idea that no athlete proclaims their desire to stay with their team during the negotiations...I call absolute BS. Not just Ryan Smyth either. Many, many athletes do this very thing during the negotiations.

What's wrong with "I love playing in Edmonton, I hope we can work something out." This happens all the time...even with UFAs...
