I'd expect that unlike Lindros, Comrie isn't going to try to use that as some kind of veto. Winter threatened to earlier, but it's become clear that Winter and Comrie are becoming increasingly impatient to get playing again. I expect that once a trade is worked out in principle, the contract negotiations will go pretty quickly.
