All of a sudden Comrie comes back to Edmonton, and he promptly gets a thorough pistolwhipping from the Journal that sounds like something the Sun would write.

Given that the Journal is rumoured to be rather cozy w/ the Oilers, doesn't the timing of all this seem rather interesting? Or am I just reading too much into this?
Reading too much into this??? That's a completely rational leap, when all you've been fed is a bunch of nothing, with some half truths, spins, innuendos and a lot of speculation thrown in. Your brain knows that there has to be more to it, so it keeps looking.

Logic says that there is more to this whole "Comrie yarn".
Time will tell us something, but we may never learn the "true" story.
