I'm not saying any of the Ducks prospecst are sure things, but if it's such a crap shoot, why do you want them for Comrie? Also, how do we know Comrie isn't a crap shoot also?
If the Lowe doesn't want to get rid of Comrie for Perry and a 2nd, keep him for nothing.
A journeyman is just another word for veteran. It means they're off the learning curve, finished product kind of thing.
Comrie = proven nhl'er, and a proven goal scorer at that. However, he's small and has a questionable attitude, as well as very poor defensive ability.
Perry = big, he's a rw, he's affordable, he's scoring well, but he hasn't done a thing in any pro league anywhere.
Are those equations equal?
I think the Oilers (like any team) want above average players that they can afford, and there's no way they're going to trade Comrie for a proven nhl'er of that description. His list of negatives is too long. Frolov et al don't have that much baggage and they have the same offensive upside.
Perry might be a bargain, if the draft was held again I doubt that he'd slip past the middle of the first round. Where would the oft injured Pouliot go?
A rw makes a lot of sense, Hemsky is solid but Dvo might not be affordable in 3 years or less. Enter; Perry.
I think a 2nd rnd pick may not be enough to even this one out though. Then again, I don't care. Buh-bye now Mikey.
