That my 0.02$.
I get your point, but it's not only about him being a tremendous player in the making. In that case, Jaromir Jagr would still be with Pittsburgh. I think his salary demands are too high for Edmonton's economic context, and Kevin Lowe doesn't want to take a chance signing him at 3-4 millions a year. That should be one of the many reasons that can explain the trade rumors around the league about Comrie getting traded. If Mike was reasonable in what he is asking for, he'd probably already be on the Oilers' line up. It's always been this way in Edmonton. If they had the money required, they'd probably still have guys like Doug Weight and Janne Niinimaa.
