I wouldn't say "long time", I'd be hoping to see something happen at or b4 the 30 game mark.

Lowe will have had more than enough time to evaluate his own needs, and other gm's around the league will be at the point where they know they should make a move.

Most importantly, the return we get for Comrie should be a valuable player, and it would be nice to have that player around for a big chunk of the season. It's already been proven that forwards don't just come in here and start playing like Oilers right off the bat, the period of adjustment here seems to be well over twenty games.
