Unfortunately for Comrie he never got to go through the "young kid with no expectations on him" stage where you play on the 4th line and fans love you no matter what you do. Even Weight got to play that role here, I can still remember when DW claimed "I can be a #1 center in this league" and me thinking that we would be in trouble if that was the case.

When Mike broke into the league after holding out as a ufa ( ) and then took over the #1 spot from Weight he was right in the thick of things from day 1, having a brutal season like the last one (defensively) really put him behind the 8 ball.

I know that the fans here believed in him long term, he has an inner toughness and desire that will get him far in this world with any amount of skill, but I can understand how a guy can only take so much flak.
