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.
Not exactly, it was well known in the Comrie situation that it is not so much about money but a lot more to do with the fact Comrie cannot handle the pressure of Oilers media, and attention of being the goto guy on that team.
