If Chicago and Edmonton want a Comrie blockbuster, I wouldn't mind seeing the following:
Comrie, Pisani, Rita, 3rd -------- for -------- Arnason, Bell, Seabrook
No one is untouchable in the right circumstances Gretzky got traded and so did Lindros, I offered players I know Chicago wants, would they part with Ruutu probably not but when one of the orignial teams is postimg 75% attendance figures in a city as big as Chicago its kind of scary and the trade is still fair with a little bit of overpayment. They have so many young developing players it would be nice if they could have a few that have already made it. Dempsey had an exceptional year last year I think he has to be refered to as a 4-5th defense man now but yes that trade is not quite balanced but Comrie can't fetch both Arnason and McCarty although it is close.ur trade far as I am concerned
Comrie+Rita(not sure if much interest) = Arnason+Bell(whom they love)
Rita has yet to prove much I think they have enough guys in there system like that when both Arnason and Bell are both contributing members to their team. Pisani+3rd pick for Seabrook is entirely laughable this guy will be absolutely great(I think better than Brewer), I don't believe they need any of Pisani's services ya 3rd picks are nice but he is of superstar calibre and I like him almost as much Ruutu he is just as protected as Ruutu and highly coveted.
