I'm thinking Comrie or Reinpretch. Obviously It wouldn't be straight up, but do you think they'd go for it?

Comrie would be the perfect second line center but he would cost more than just Aebischer.

Not much... Comrie is a UFA at season's end and earns 1.1m$ more than Aebischer. We'd probably have to throw someone in to fit in under the cap though.

Comrie's kind of on the small side.. 5'9". I mean, we already have a few shrimps here in Bouillon and Samsonov.

Who cares about size is correct but Comrie is not needed in Montreal, and that said I would rather hold on to Aebischer all season. If Huet were to get injured (knock on wood that he does not), Aebischer is a capable backu-up, infact he is a very good goalie and has just struggled of late and is inosistent.

Comrie is a 30 goal scorer. He knows his way around the offensive zone, and could be a finisher for Kovalev and Samsonov. I'd rather get someone better, but I certainly wouldn't be mad if Gainey acquired him.

Comrie is well behaved. And he actually wants to stay in Phoenix so unless you flash the bling at him hes not going to resign. No matter what you think about him, the little **** is talented and scores. He is highly expendable because of Mueller.

Who said we needed him to re-sign?

Do we really need to go over this every couple of days? We beat this one to death not two days ago.

We're not going to get Perrault if we could have gotten him for free 3 weeks ago.

I like the idea of Comrie. I think we'd have to take a mediocre backup goalie in return, someone like Morrison. We'd probably have to send a prospect or a pick to Pheonix.

I'd rather try Higgins at centre when he returns. I think the consensus is that he can be a 30 goal guy if he plays on the top 6.

Ideally I'd leave him with Koivu, but until something better than Comrie comes along, I'd rather band-aid the problem internally.

I think Comrie would tear it up in Montreal. I would love it if he was acquired. If it doesn't work out...you haven't lost that much. I think Pheonix would trade Comrie for Abby and Murray...maybe a later pick.

I'd take Reinprecht any day if not for his injury issues these last years.

Phoenix doesn't need a goalie. It seems like Cujo will be running away with this season.

He sucks, he's got some skills but no heart. Why do you think edmonton shipped him off?

We still have Kovalev and Markov don't we? Sometimes heart is overrated...I care more about results.

I think its a small gamble if I would pay of would be great if not well its only for this year. I find its about the same kind of gamble even less then Niinima.

Ya right, Kovalev has no heart...you have no clue what you're talking about.

You care more about results? Then maybe you should stop bashing Kovy who leads our team in PPG in the playoffs since becoming a hab...

Comrie is ****.

p.s. Markov will get 5-6million next year, and is top 5 in the NHL for points. Comparing him to Comrie is just stupid. But what did I expect from the same guy who argued endlessly that we should give Aebischer the first home game start over Huet...how's that workin out for ya?
