To be fair to Mike Comrie, he did allegedly ask for a trade at the trade deadline last season, before any of the alleged criticism.

Personally, I don't think it has to do with any conflict with management...I just don't think he can take the pressure a lot of the fans put on him with the whole "he's a local kid/the next big thing" talk that went through 2001-2002 that turned to venom after his injury/bonus chasing.

Not excusing him, obviously, signing a contract like he did then not living up to it, he was bound to piss people off, but I think it's a mistake to write this off as a whole management/Mike Comrie conflict.
