Forsberg - Probably the best player in the league. He unchallenged when it comes to pure overall skills. He's NEVER hit the 30 goal mark.

Mike Comrie - nowhere near as good as Forsberg but hit 30+ goals in his first full NHL season.

Brad Richards - Great player but has never scored more than 21 goals. Does Edmonton realy need another passer? In past seasons Edmonton has struggled to find a pure sniper who will shoot first and pass second. Comrie is closer to being a sniper than Richards. Ricahrds has the size we want, the hockey sense, and potential but Comrie is the kind of guy we NEED to complete our team. sure...he's gotta grow up and learn some defense but his offensive minded game can not be taught.

Comrie for Richards already makes no sense, so TBAY adds Khabibulin and we add Smytty and Salo? This rumour better not be true. I know Kevin Lowe is smarter than that. Who the hell does TBAY's GM think he is acting like this deal is fair and make sense. The Oilers get screwed in this deal no matter how you look at it. Hopefully this is nothing but a stupid rumour fabricated by a guy in cyberspace who has way too much time on his hands.
