It's a fair question. I wouldn't have minded holding out longer either. Maybe Comrie would be more open-minded about destinations as the trade deadline gets closer... maybe some other team develops an urgent need or decides Comrie would look good in their rebuilding program. Things might have changed. As well, the Oilers could have afforded to add more salary as the trade deadline nears.

Hasn't it been reported that the Isles were negotiating with Lowe but dropped out when Winter told them Comrie wouldn't sign there?

I know it was rumoured Frolov's name was mentioned during discussions with the Kings... but I've got a hunch Lowe probably did all the mentioning. That discussion might have gone something like this...

Lowe: "Frolov?"
Taylor: "No."
Lowe: "Frolov?"
Taylor: "No."
Lowe: "Frolov?"
Taylor: "No."
Lowe: "Frolov?"
Taylor: "No."
Lowe: "Camma..."
Taylor: "Y..."
Lowe: "Frolov?"
Taylor: "No."

Actually, that was Marty Reasoner and Jochen Hecht.. but I digress.
