I would typically agree with you about adding another small forward but it seems as though management is sacrificing size and toughness for goal-scoring (which may or may not be a smart idea). With the formation and subsequent success of the Pyatt/Drury/Briere line, I really think there's a spot for Comrie on this team, on a line with Satan and Kotalik more specifically. Those are two fine scoring lines IMHO. Plus, we really aren't downgrading in size because Comrie simply replaces Afinogenov. And I think once Boulton gets healthy, the line of Eric, Peters, and Mair is gonna be an adequate physical presence.

Pyatt/Drury/Briere
Kotalik/Comrie/Satan
Brown/Taylor/Dumont
Boulton/Mair/Peters
(Hecht, Connolly)

How do you go wrong with that??
