Up next in Scouting The Market: Mr. Hillary Duff, Mike Comrie. Read the other Scouting The Markets here.
Mike Comrie is a 29 year old center who played last season with the Oilers. Battling mono, Comrie put up a line of 13-8-21 in 43 games. This is not indicative of his abilities. A two time 30 goal scorer, Comrie has always put up big numbers when healthy. Problem? He’s not always healthy. In 9 seasons, he’s only played 75+ games 4 times.
Comrie is a scoring center, who’s quick and slippery in the offensive zone. He could benefit from playing with Marian Gaborik.
Of course, the 5-10 centericeman isn’t the only attraction. He’s engaged to Hillary Duff. It wouldn’t be awful seeing her at Rangers games.
So, assuming no other signings, here’s how the lines could shape up:
Comrie made $1.125 million last year. Coming off an injury plagued season, Comrie should net around $1 million.
Comrie provides scoring, but he’s very fragile. Is he worth the risk? Let us know in the comments.
