Kinda like what happened with Weight with his contract dispute a few years back. Then fans will turn up the "Comrie bashing" even more, making a horrible distraction for a team that will be fighting for 7-8th spot. It will be a huge soap opera for a young team and frankly, I don't think the team would be able to perform at its peak with this distraction. I'd only imagine this to be ten times worse than what happened with Arnott.
I'd say do what OTT did and trade or package Comrie to get Ovechkin.
I have talked about this course of action a ka-billion times, but from what I have herd, people don't seem overly interested in waiting. What I proposed to get OVechkin was:
So really we'd get Ovechkind and the other team would get a great deal of help now for a pick downgrade. I dunno. I'd be happy with it.
