in my opinion i think that the oilers should get somebody that is already a proven player, because a very good proven player (comrie) is worth much more than a great unproven player
I hear what you are saying... but I think you are incorrect when concidering the value of unproven prospects by the league. Guys who are highly rated, have an exceptionally high value... even to the point of being unreasonable. I think you are correct in that you will get better value for Comrie looking else where.

That said... Tuomo Ruutu is likely better value than Comrie no? Last year, unproven Kovulchuk (sp) or Heatley would be more than you could get for Comrie as well. Some players have franchise written all over them, and as good as Comrie is, I'm not certain he's at that calibur. Or maybe he is... personally I'd rather have Jason Smyth than Comrie leading my team.
