Comrie Skating With Oilers?

So Mike Comrie was skating with some of the Oilers (Cogliano, Nilsson and others) today at the Kinsman arena. Interesting... Very interesting. Or is it?

Everyone and their dog knows that the Oil don't really need another small forward. So why Comrie? Well some reports have suggested that Katz is pushing for Mike as he is a friend of the family. I tend to believe that is the main reason that this is even happening in the first place. I find it hard to believe that management said, "Hey, why not Comrie? Let's go smaller." This has Katz all over it. You know what? I'd be hands on too if I owned the team. I like that he is trying to improve the Oilers by persuading players to come here. Mind you, Comrie coming back here is bizarre in itself. (Oh the history)

Well no matter how you look at it, Mike Comrie will be an Oiler in the near future. There, I said it. I feel weird now. So just for old time sakes... Booooooooo!
That may well be the last time I have to do that to him. It felt good and I may miss that.

Oh and by the way... I call #39 for him.


  1. Back in the day, when both Weight & Comrie, were on the club, I always thought of Comrie, as "39" jr.

    That said, They should have a "Honor Wall" that some of the great players, who never had their number "go up", could still have a tip of the hat.

    Just say'n.

  2. So did I. Comrie tried to mold a lot of his game after Doug Weight. If I remember correctly, Comrie wore 39 when he was with the Kootenay Ice.

    As far as an "Honor Wall"... great idea. Maybe that will be brought in to the new arena concept?
