Jesus, I give up. Comrie is going to capitulate and sign for the $1.2 million that Lowe is offering, declining all potential bonuses, signing or incentive. He's going to sign before Friday and be in the lineup for the season opener where he will score a hat trick and lead the Oilers to their forst rout of many this season. Comrie will score 50 goals, add 75 assists, win the Art Ross, Richard, Hart and Pearson trophies. He will donate his entire salary to charity, take a vow of silence and become a monk, in the off season, living in the desolate reaches of Tibet, helping others attain enlightenment. Makes complete sense, contrary to the evidence at hand.
