To me, since comrie comes from such a rich family he gets knocked on a lot because people say he was an automatic nhler and he's had such an easy life. It's not Comries fault that his dad is loaded. And people say comrie shouldnt want money because his dad is so rich, thats his dad not mike. Mike wants to establish himself as a good player and make his own money and not be some bum. Also Comrie has worked very hard to get to the nhl because of his size and other factors. And i have no idea if its true about the klo comments about him only being a number 2 centre but i would be a pissed of player as well but thats just my opinion. I know this isn't relevant maybe to some but i really want Comrie to stay even though it seems like hes not i still believe he'll stay and play here. Thats all my venting for today after the piss poor effort of the oilers and for benching hemsky.
Solid points mrush. Alot of people do seem to auto-label the guy and disregard his own efforts to get to where he is. Not so much on the board, but many in the general public. Even caught a hint of that sentiment when Lowe mentioned "his family's stature" in the interview, but that is interpretation. Alot of people will not admit it, but it sure seems to fuel opinions occasionally.
