As an oiler fan i would be willing to see Comrie moved for this package if i knew heatley wasn't going to play most of the season, other wise i think comrie would really make that team dangorous with the talent already there. To much risk of Heatley making a miracolous recovery and leading them into the playoffs. I say hold out for a deal that gives the oil something of substance that can play now.
I disagree. I think people have become too focused on Ovechkin. I don't think the Thrashers are going to win the Ovechkin sweepstakes, but (with apologies to Thrasher fans) I do think that they're a good bet to be picking in the top 10- a shot at a decent player in almost any draft year.
