    James Mirtle Tweets this Comrie got the league minimum, taking less to go to Pittsburgh. Story with quotes from him will be at globesports.com shortly.

    His agent Rich Winter said on Edmonton radio station team 1260 says he's signed for the chance to win and not the money. Says he took substantially less then the Oilers paid him last year. Winter also said Crosby called Comrie and said he is excited for Comrie to play on his left wing this year.

    Seriously this should happen more often. He has a chance to play for the cup and maybe a bigger check down the road. It could be a good deal both ways.

    great chance to take. good signing. too bad he has only played in over 75 games 3 times in his career. get him a permanent locker in the training room.

    I'll take it!

    So have the Pens spent all their cap money now?

    With the Comrie signing, it's looking more and more like the roster is pretty set and none of the young guys, especially Nick Johnson and Dustin Jeffrey, and to a lesser extent Tangradi (who I think prob needs another yr. in the AHL) are gonna crack the roster out of camp. Barring injury and Stalls status of course.

    You could even throw in Wallace, Conner, Letestu and Ryan Craig as guys I thought had an outside chance of being the 13th forward.( Johnson Jeffrey and Tangradi's roles would have to be top 9 or they wouldn't benifit IMO),

    Top 12
    1. Sid
    2. Geno
    3. Cooke
    4. Asham
    5. Rupp
    6. Comrie
    7. Kunitz
    8. Talbot
    9. TK
    10. Staal
    11. Adams
    12. Dupuis

    13. Godard

    I was really hopeful that Nick Johnson would make the roster out of camp, but it'll be nice to have guys like Johnson Tangradi and Jeffrey in the AHL who can come up due to injury and fill a top 6-9 role in a pinch.

    !

    I've always said that you can't score 30+ goals in the NHL 2 times by accident. Two 60 point seasons, this guy can play. He just has to find a right fit. Crosby's wing is such a fit. He and Brad Boyes will be comback players of the year.
    Sid will boost his stats and this guy will produce like he did in Phoenix. And he'll be motivated to earn a new deal cause he knows it's this chance or pack your bags for the KHL.

    Comrie is someone who doesnt need the money (and i dont mean because of what he has made in the NHL either) so its pretty awesome to see him want to win over the checks.

    http://espn.go.com/nhl/blog/_/name/n...at-opportunity





    The voice on the other end of the phone says, "Hi, it's Mike Comrie of the Pittsburgh Penguins."

    Then he laughs.

    "That's the first time I've said that," Comrie told ESPN.com on Friday afternoon, not long after he signed a one-year deal with the Penguins worth $500,000.

    It's been an interesting summer for Comrie, who wed actress Hilary Duff a couple of weeks ago, and the Pens. Pittsburgh added a skilled forward who can do a little bit of everything and may end up doing a lot more than a little as the Pens set their sights on another Stanley Cup run.

    Veteran defenseman Sergei Gonchar, a pillar along the Penguins' blue line the past few years, left via free agency and was essentially replaced by Paul Martin and Zbynek Michalek (Comrie's old teammate in Phoenix).

    Veteran forward Bill Guerin wasn't invited back as GM Ray Shero chose to add some depth up front with former Flyer Arron Asham and Comrie to round out what should once again be one of the most formidable lineups in the Eastern Conference.

    Comrie, who scored 30 goals in the first season after the lockout for Phoenix and then went on to play for the Ottawa Senators in the Stanley Cup finals in 2007. The Edmonton native played for two years on Long Island and then spent the last part of the 2008-09 season back in Ottawa before appearing in just 43 games for the last-place Edmonton Oilers last season.

    Comrie said he is excited about what lies ahead in Pittsburgh.

    "You look at the roster with all those elite players," he said. "It's a great opportunity and a great challenge."

    With Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Jordan Staal, Kris Letang, et al, if you're getting ice time, you're going to get chances to score.

    Comrie will turn 30 next weekend and hasn't appeared in a postseason game since the 2007 run, during which he played with an injured shoulder yet still appeared in 20 postseason games. That playoff drought will almost certainly end for Comrie next spring and goes a long way toward explaining why he signed on for significantly less money than he earned earlier in his career.

    "As a player that's what you live for, a chance to win the Stanley Cup, to try and get back to that level, to try and give yourself that challenge," Comrie said.

    The Penguins got good reports on Comrie from his former GMs and they hope he'll be able to fill in, perhaps as a third-line center, perhaps picking up some power-play time. With Staal set to miss the start of training camp while rehabbing from the sliced tendon in his foot sustained in the second round of the playoffs, Comrie's early role may be even more enhanced.

    Whatever it is, Comrie said he's up for it.

    And when you're an NHL player and you still happen to be the second-most famous person in your house, we were forced to ask the mandatory question about his new bride. He laughed politely at the idea that he wasn't being pestered by just hockey writers, what with Hollywood paparazzi and the like, but Comrie said he tries to keep the line between his work life and private life clearly defined.

    "When you're in a situation where you're in the public eye, you try not to let it effect you," he said. "For me, I'm concerned with hockey, and when I'm away from the rink, I'm concerned about my life."

    I love it! Also happy that Guerin is no longer in the mix.
    The only player in the NHL more overpaid than MAF is Jordan Staal
