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.” Continue reading 'Oilers offer Mike Comrie a $1.3M deal?'»

* – UPDATE: Dan Tencer says confirmation of this sale is a bit pre-mature. The Katz Group has agreed to purchase the land, however the transaction is not finalized yet.
