I don't see the word "sign" anywhere in that comment.
OK... Even tho, the rules of the english language can be manipulated. I will concede that you are correct, in that the word 'play' does not have the same meaning as the word 'sign'.

However, since we're dealing with the rules of NHL hockey, I am also correct. To 'play', he must 'sign'. And if he 'signs', he must 'play' for the team that holds that signature.

We have a win - win situation, so let's quit while we're both ahead.

The latest thing i heard wasn't a problem with base salary (around 1.8-2.0) , but Comrie wanted the same bonus structure, something Lowe wants no part of.

I read at Spectors that Comrie wanted $4M plus bonuses. Remind me, does Mike Comrie have a concussion.
