Can't say I'm that surprised. Someone will pick him up though.

Hopefully we don't lose him for nothing.

It wouldn't be a huge loss....and if we could have gotten anything for him, we would have.

Canadian Thanksgiving was a month ago. Comeau's thanksgiving was when he signed his contract. If he clears he never sees re-entry.

Whoever picks him up may squeeze 20 goal season from him, but that's about it. What an uninspiring floater Blake turned out to be.

I can't see a long line of teams trying to pick up a $2.5M player with 0 points and a -11. A team would have to be pretty desperate to pick him up.

Like Kasper said, the 2.5 might put a lot of teams off. Yeah, it seems like Comeau forgot what got him to the NHL in the first place. I remember when he first came up you would get 2 or 3 thundering hits a game from him. Now he plays like he's 5'5 140 pounds.

I'm Blake Comeau and I skate around the net as if that kicks in a performance bonus for me.

I never understood many on this boards fascination with this guy. "Oh but he scored 24 goals last year."

And...?

This isn't a real hockey player on a true cup contender. Only on the Isles could he score 24 goals.

You're right, the better move would be to keep playing a guy that doesn't contribute anything. They tried playing him, benching him, nothing worked. Nobody is willing to trade for him. What else are you going to do?

0 points in 16 games, -11, floats around carelessly, barely uses the body, all after getting a decent $2.5M contract over the summer. Yeah, he'd be my scapegoat too.

Won't be missed. Nino should be going in and Rolston should be given some quality rest. rotate Pandolfo and Reasoner.

Why do you choose to disagree with every move Snow makes? This is the right thing to do, the guy has ZERO points and he SUCKS.

And yes let's bring back Milbury! Good idea.

Ok, nice to see that the club is actually making the statement they should have made 7 games or so ago, but better late than never.

This clearly sends a message to the entire club but maybe there is some good heralded by this as well? Comeau made how much this year? $2.5 million? Doesn't that mean we have to fill a little salary in to reach the floor or were we just above it enough to absorb this and add no one?

If they waived Rolston as well I'd almost think it would mean they are bringing someone of value in via trade, but my hope gland is completely dry at the moment.

Happy T day everyone. Go stuff yourselves (with turkey)
