He's sure been given lots of opportunities to show his stuff, so perhaps the Oilers figure he needs a change of scenery (sorta like Cleary, although he hasn't really blossomed since being let go).

I can see the 'haggling' between GMs going something like this:

Lowe: OK, you can have Comrie if I get Stefan and Coburn.
Waddell: Hmmm...make it Exelby instead of Coburn.
Lowe: No, I don't want Exelby as much.
Waddell: Well, the only way I'll give up Coburn is if you throw in Horcoff and Rita.
Lowe: I'd give you Rita if you throw in a 2nd-round pick but not Horcoff.
Waddell: Make it a 3rd-round pick, but Exelby instead of Coburn
Lowe: No, I said I didn't want Exelby much. OK, look, Stefan/Coburn/3rd-round pick, we give you Comrie, Rita and our 4th.
Waddell: Make that Exelby instead of Coburn and you got a deal.
Lowe: -click-
LOL! that's probably it!
