But that doesn't change the fact that most Oilers fans are expecting more in return than they're going to get, much more. Lupul and change is far closer to reality than even Handzus and change -- if that gives you any clue.
I wasn't speaking on their behalf, nor would I even bother...where did you get that from? You must be some kind of genius. I was suggesting that what Oilers fans think is chock full of deluded homerisms. Coburn for Comrie? Good luck!
Nobody wants a cancer, nobody wants a spoiled brat, nobody wants a consistent contract hold-out, and they sure as hell don't want an unsigned one who is all of the above.
More than a few Oilers fan knew exactly what type of personality Mike Comrie was last season (and has been most of his pro hockey life). Not exactly the most humble and nice guy you could run into.
But the truth is skill he does have.
In short, if Braydon Coburn is not available from Atlanta (like people are suggesting), fine, good luck to him in Atlanta. But at that point Atlanta is not getting Comrie. Simple as that
