I look at it this way...Comrie et al had Kevin Lowe over a barrell and negotiated a rather lucrative conract. I would assume had Comrie et al not had the leverage of going back into the draft, or free agency the contract terms might have been less generous. However, they had the leverage and used it. They basically wrote their own contract. If they lacked the foresight to look two years down the road and see what was looming then T.S. Comrie should get another agent IMHO. He should also sign a deal here in Edmonton. I don't like the fact that it looks like he quit on this team and is coming across as a thin-skinned baby in the process. I think that says a lot about Comrie's character and I am not so sure that a person of such character is needed on this team.

Kevin Lowe is just returning a favour from a couple of years ago. Time to grow up Mikey, take your lumps and be a man about things.
