To be fair, Comrie had what, 2 good years after he left (and not successive)? Instead we got one of the assets that helped us land Pronger, as well as draft a promising prospect (who happened to bust) and a guy who turned into a decent AHL dman. It might have looked bad, but we came out of it pretty well
