Sens says bye to Comrie

Mike Comrie signed up with the New York Islanders yesterday, on a 1 year deal. The playmaking center was a free agent after his contract got over on July 1st, having been traded to the Ottawa Senators by Pheonix. Comrie was part of the great run by the Sens to the Stanley Cup finals and would have been an asset to the Sens nation. The 26-year old Comrie had 20 goals and 25 assists for 45 points in 65 games last season with Phoenix and Ottawa. In the Senators’ run to the Stanley Cup Final in June, the Edmonton native had four goals and two assists in 20 games.

On another purpose loan note, Bill Guerin also signed up with the Islanders on a 2 year contract. Last season, Guerin scored 36 goals split between the St. Louis Blues and the San Jose Sharks.

The Calgary Flames signed up two players, forward Grant Stevenson, who has played more in the minors, and Owen Nolan who is trying to make a comeback. Nolan had to sit out two seasons due to knee injuries and is now more confident after playing a full season with the Coyotes.
