If the trade was going to happen it would involve ribeiro but since the oils are asking for another defencemen its just to much because ribeiro is on the verge of having a breakout year, so enough said about this trade just wont happen.

Its going to be hard for the oils to trade comerie to any team because of his hight and his contract status. Those two factors are going to be hard for The oils to get a player thats going to make an impact right away . Its going to have to be some prospect at best.
I'd wait for Ribeiro to have more than 4 or 5 good games to be considered a #2 centre. He might end up there, but he's struggled to stick with the team the last 3 or 4 years. Comrie is a 30 goal man. Sure, he's short, but he isn't your typical little guy. He plays big. Sure he's half the size of Perrault, but the switch would leave you twice as tough up front.
