Behind Enemy Lines I concur with your assessment of the potential of those who would be recieved in a trade for Comrie as you outlined and if such a deal happens let's hope for the best. With players like MacInnis, Carney, and Hatcher (no tears here) going down I think this points to how much harder it is for, especially small market teams, to develope depth on the blueline. That is the only simple point I am making.

So if a good solid top 4 D-man is not a trade possibility I agree with you the Oilers should wait until Lowe can get value for Comrie. In this case though maybe we can trade Comrie's salary expectations for size, depth and more experience. The Fram Filter trade approach i.e. pay me now or bare the time and cost of developing younger players.
