Comeau Comparable

Comeau was 77 24 22 46 -17 (born '86)
Purcell was 81 17 34 51 5 (born '85)


Purcell agreed to a 2-year, $4.725 million deal (via Nick Kypreos) a hefty raise from the $750,000 he made last season.

Not that he didn't deserve a raise, with career highs of 17 goals, 34 assists and 51 points in 81 games last season for the Lightning. But his real value was in the postseason: For all the chatter about Sean Bergenheim(notes) being a playoff revelation, Purcell had 17 points in 18 games during the Bolts' run to the conference finals.
