Rent, don't buy

Now that Mike Comrie (at right) has played his first game with Ottawa, logging two assists in the Senators' 6-3 thumping of the Buffalo Sabres earlier tonight, I have to ask this question -- What's the deal with him?

With injuries to Ottawa's Jason Spezza and Mike Fisher forcing the deal, the Senators are Comrie's fourth team in six seasons. This is also the second time he's been traded during a season.

I understand that an extended holdout wore out his welcome in his hometown of Edmonton, but one has to wonder how a guy like Comrie, who can put some points on the board, can't seem to stay in one place for a long time.

If Comrie keeps it up, he could be his generation's job-hopping Mike Sillinger, now with his 12th organization in only 15 seasons.

Just a hunch

I wouldn't be surprised to see the Chicago Blackhawks, despite their owner's skinflint reputation, make a strong financial move to lure Team Canada's shootout specialist Jonathan Toews (pronounced Tayvs) away from the University of North Dakota. Toews was the third overall pick in the 2006 draft.

The Thrill is back

Here's some great news. Less than a month after having surgery for testicular cancer, Boston rookie Phil "The Thrill" Kessel skated earlier today with his Bruins teammates.
