Very little risk and plenty of reward. Best case scenario he returns back to being a decent scorer with 30 goal upside, worst case scenario he's bad and continues doing nothing. They basically swapped Hagman for Comeau and and with Blake you know he's still on 25 so the upside is their. I think this was way too pre-mature for Snow to give him away.

Snow got Grabner for nothing. He is just paying it forward.

I do not think a NYI castoff will help anyone, but I know you have to try stuff when you are in Feaster's position. This seems like a step in a new direction, at least.

According to Elliotte Friedman, several teams put in claims for Comeau, including Nashville and Minnesota.

And I remember reading somewhere the Canadiens did too. They didn't know what they're getting. I was a Comeau fan, but even I have to admit that this guy is so hot and cold that it's a bad thing. He can't do anything in a slump.

If this gets Comeau going, he will be having nights like this and better every game for the next month or so...unfortunately once that ends, he will go 20 games without a point and be useless in all 3 zones.

we will see. remmeber when peverly was waived because of how bad he was? sometimes being given away can serve as a wake up call for a player, or a new system could simply be a fit.

I thought Peverley was waived because of a numbers game. Regardless, Comeau isn't going to have an impact like Peverley, who is a hard working player who can still be effective when he's not scoring. Comeau can't do that, he will be invisible.

funny thing is he has been hard working and effective as a Flame in every game. Players can change when there is a wake up call, its unfair to write off a 25 year old and say he incapable of changing their game and growing

if that was the case Moulson wouldn't be an NHLer.

its not very smart to state thing you really don't know as if they are fact because the truth is we never know what changes in players to make some suddenly effective.

To be fair, he has seen him play a lot more than us most likely. I don't doubt that was true on the Island. I sometimes wonder what kind of an organization a clown like Wang is capable of putting together though. Must be draining to play there.

Oh trust me, when he's on, this kid is on. But when he's off, he's wayyyyy off.

You can say the same about Calgary and the mess going on there. As well of some agents of players speaking publicly about that train wreck.


I have seen Blake play 2 games so far for the Flames. He has a little more jump right now but he hasn't produced. He is getting paid decent and not bringing much to the table.

As an Isles fan I liked Comeau but he was benched by Nolan, Gordon and Caps. So there are consistency issues with him and he does have a good hockey sense.

I do wish the Isles were able to package him in a deal but Wang probably wanted to save some cash like always.

How long has your rebuild been? I cant remember the last time the Isles were a competitive team? I would rather have the "train wreck" then have to watch the isles play night after night

Haha, no, you really can't. The Flames have one of the most well respected ownership groups in the league. That makes a huge difference in a rebuild, as evidenced by the Islanders' two decade long one.

This is key, he has eventually pissed off every coach he has had at the NHL level.

I think Comeau is a decent 3rd liner who will pop in 15-20 goals a year. But he is annoying as hell and really don't think he has the greatest hockey sense. My gut says is that he becomes a journeyman, playing just well enough to get a new contract but poorly enough to not be wanted by the team he currently is playing for.

Let's be honest - neither organization has much to be proud of right now.

And for those defending the Flames, there's only one year - ONE - in the last 21 years that they have won a playoff series and that would be 2004. That's an incredible stat and one that no organization should be proud of.

I'm a Flames fan, but I'm not going to defend the management - it's been brutal since the early 90s. The fans deserve better. I think they may finally be on the right track, but given the organization's woeful history of mis-steps I'm going to reserve judgement.

Wang has been an owner since 2000 (11 years). In that time the Islanders have made the playoffs 4 times. Not great but not putrid. In comparison Calgary has gotten in 5 times.

The true rebuild is only in its 4th or 5th season (depending on where you time it from).

Calgary's bad but the Islanders are a whole different level of bad. The Islanders have made the playoffs exactly once since the lockout and haven't finished better than 26th in the last 4 seasons (and it doesn't look like they'll do any better this season). Although Calgary's been bad the last 2 seasons, they still managed to put up 90+ points. Hardly anything to brag about, I know, but it at least would have put them in the playoffs in the East.

And aside from Winter, who are the other agents bashing the Flames?

Goal and an assist last night. Admittedly, the goal was a pretty soft one, but production is production. At the end of the day, this is pretty much a zero-risk move for the Flames. Great move if it works out and no harm done if it doesn't.

One agent. Who has a axe to grind because he didn't get the job as GM. Last I checked he has two clients who play for the Flames, so he didn't think that badly of the Flames before he was rejected as GM. Calgary may be close to as bad on the ice as the Isles, but are a million times stronger as an organization. It's why two of our long term owners are in the HHOF in the builders category. Think Wang will ever be there?

Nolan coached him as a rookie. The vast majority on non-superstar rookies spend time in the press box. I agree Comeau had consistency issues. So did/does Moulson, Tavares, Okposo, Grabner and Niederreiter. Should they be waived?

But this happens year in and year out for Comeau for ridiculous stretches of time. This is his 6th pro year already, those stretches should decrease, not increase.

Moulson, Tavares, Okposo (save for the beginning of this year), and Grabner all don't score for stretches at a time but they don't become totally useless like Comeau does (maybe Moulson to some extent).


I think there are one reason he was waived:
1) Snow needed to shake something up and Comeau was the most expendable piece.


Maybe there was a team offering a 5th or something similar for Comeau. We'll never really know.

I absolutley think teams were willing to give something for Comeau. The Isles simply didn't want to take back any salary, so we got him for freeskies.

He's been solid so far. Another dumb winger to add to our collection of dumb wingers. But he has been hitting everything in sight and has 4 points in two games. So far, so good.

2 points in 4 games. But that's still great production considering it's the Flames.
