When you think about it, this is a city that saw Gretzky, Moog, Fuhr, Messier, Kurri, Coffey, Anderson walk out (all potential hall of famers) and then a series of other all star players go out as well - Arnott, Poti, Weight, Simpson, Huddy, Ranford, Joseph, carter. Comrie is just another name. The fans have been de-sensitized to stars leaving and would rather see the team benefit that one player.
If Winter or Comrie or anybody at the NHLPA thought the public might be behind Comrie, they just don't understand this town very well.
