I took a look at the portland and Prince Albert rosters to see if there were any other drafted players that pendergast may be looking at. Of the four players, only NYI 2003 2nd round pick Coliiton is remotely interesting. He is a 6'2" centre and is plus 4 but he has never scored at a point per game clip in the whl. To compare that to comrie, mike average 2.5 pts per game in his brief stint in the whl.

It has to be coburn. There is a lot of circumstantial evidence to support an immenent trade. First off, Lowe admitted to trying to move up to get one of the big 3 dman in this year's draft. Comrie is also a distraction to the team. Even if lowe trades him for picks/prospects, the distraction is gone.

The other thing is that atl is expected to challenge for a playoff spot this year and are not drawing big crowds in spite of their winning record. They are like nashville in that the bloom is off and it is time to put up some wins.

comrie + 2nd round pick for coburn and a 1st?
