UPDATE: From Dan Tencer’s twitter: “Oilers management has consulted at least one member of the veteran leadership group regarding Mike Comrie. It’s appears to be serious. Also, I’m told that Comrie is fully on board with a return to Edmonton.” Like it or not, this thing has legs.
Oilersnation has a post up about the Oilers offering Mike Comrie a contract (reportedly worth $1.3M). Dan Tencer says they “have not signed Comrie but I’m led to believe that it’s not out of the realm of possibility.”
This could be just one of those “my best friends friend heard from a guy who once went to school with this guy that new Comrie” rumors, but the writer on Oilersnation (Wanye Gretz) seems to think it’s true. Lowetide also has a post up about the rumor.
Anyways, let the speculation begin.
Thoughts? Good way to make Edmonton look less like Siberia? Or a waste of time since he’s not what this team needs?
