To: Carolina for ???

To: Atlanta for suter

Has anyone else heard anything not listed here?
Gomez for Comrie is possible. Gomez is a centre, makes only $900,000, relatively young (24 yo) and is slightly bigger than Comrie at 5'11.

I don't see Anaheim as a realistic trading partner. Fedorov is their number 1, Rucchin is their #2 and young Smirnov is coming up as well. Where would Comrie fit in? Futhermore, Chistov is a LW, which is a position where we are already stock full. We need either a centre coming back or a defender.

NYR - Nope. They already have much centres. Maybe after this year, they get rid of Lindros and retire Messier leaving Holik and Nedved. doesn't look like a trade with NYR is likely this year. Maybe closer to the deadline or next year.

Carolina - Nope. They already have Ronnie Francis (who moved to LW), Staal and Brindamour. Unless Roddie is thinking of retiring, they have two strong centres. And the names being thrown around (Vasicek, Cole) are wingers. Don't we have a plethora of them already?

Atlanta - Possible. Their top two centres are Savard and Stefan and Comrie could help them. But who would we get back? Certainly not Suter, he just got drafted! They will wait to see how he develops before making that trade. Stefan coming back with some other young player is likelier but losing Comrie for Stefan hurts the Oilers down the middle.
