A similar trade this offseason was defensive prospect Ballard (11th overall pick in 2002) for Steve Reinprecht. Considering Comrie is younger and has had higher point totals than Reinprecht, I would imagine that Coburn for Comrie would also have to include an Atlanta pick or be a part of some sort of multi-player package to round out the deal.
I agree with this. I was just hoping that a straight up deal could work.
Maybe a package with either Dafoe or Hurme makes this work.
