Comrie gets 4 pts in first home game back in Edmonton
4 assists and a fight for Mike Comrie in his first home game since rejoining the Oilers. He recieved several loud cheers and even a "Comrie" chant from the fans. I guess it is always possible to come home.
Was flying through the neutral zone settin' up Sully from all over the place, was also threatening to shoot since he has a great shot. Making effective plays not overhandling the puck, playing a very smart game.
Also, what impressed me the most (even though it was the Florida Panthers, had their top D in the game and Vokoun as well) was his effort on the backcheck. As quick as he came flying into the O-zone looking to score, he was first forward back in his own end, breaking up rushes and skating hard.
Wonderful game from Comrie tonight and although it was pre-season, it was a beauty to see. The pride was really showing out there tonight.
I am thrilled, Comrie needed to do something big on his Debut and he definitely did that, It was almost the perfect night for him. As a Hockey fan how could anyone boo that performance from him. He did all the right things to win back the fans that's for sure.
Did Comrie get booed at all? I was interested in seeing how the crowd would react to him.
He played in Switzerland last season, is on a tryout with Florida. Just preseason roster fodder.
Comrie was looking pretty good tonight, very fast and slick, great on the PP controlling the play. He looked re-energized after last season. Although the Panthers didn't help themselves, taking lots of bonehead penalties and it gave Comrie a chance to rack up a couple PP points.
