[NHL] Phoenix Signs Mike Comrie

Recommended Posts

Just saw it on ESPNEWS's ticker, but it doesn't have it on their site yet...

Anyways, Phoenix sure is going after a lot of free agent talent... wonder how much the deal is worth, though. He's a good player...

Mike Comrie was not a free agent (well, at least not an unrestricted free agent).

Last season Phoenix traded Sean Burke, a wiinger and a prospect to Philly in exchange for Comrie. Therefore Phoenix had the rights to Comrie and signed him before his arbitration hearing on Saturday.

Since he went from $1.65 million last year to a two year deal with $4 million then I hardly think that Pheonix is throwing money around with respect to Comrie.

Now, the deal for 40yr old unresticted agent Brett Hull on the other hand, is considered "generous"...

In related news, Phoenix has unretired #9 for Brett:

Sorry, I wasn't implying that he was a free agent, just that they're going after a lot of free agents and then they signed him.

And, yeah, I saw the stuff about Hull... and the jersey being "unretired". I'm not sure if it's a PR stunt or if it's actually meaningful. Most likely PR.

I've never heard of him before.:huh:h:

He's a good 24 year old. Gritty but small. He was drafted by Edmonton so I'm not surprised you haven't seen him.

Well they're unretiring Bobby Hull's #9 for Brett Hull. I don't think that Dad will mind sharing the honour. They'll probably reretire #9 for both of them in two years or whenever Brett retires.

Brett and Bobby don't exactly have a good relationship... that and Brett has publically gotten P.O.'d when clubs offered the number 9 to him because his father wore it.
