meh, about what I expected. I was a big fan of Comeau a couple years ago, even stocked up on his rookie cards. But after seeing him night in, night out last season, I'm not as passionately in his corner. But considering he's a season removed from 24 goals, I can accept $1.25-1.5m, whichever it is.
Splitting hairs, but that's even better. Consider this - he's a year removed from scoring 20 goals in this league; that's saying something. He'll be playing harder for a longer term contract next season, that could be good for us as well.
As an aside, he really reminds me of Robert Reichel when he first came to the Flames. Always oh-so-close but could never buy a goal. Then one day, he just started scoring.
Don't mind this signing at all. It's one year and a low cap hit for a guy that has potential to try to get back into a decent scorer (Don't think it will happen but it could). Also I thought he was good on the PK so I'm happy he is back.
