Could the Islanders trade Comeau?

With 10 NHL scouts scattered around the press box — Comeau, on a one-year, $2.3-million contract, would be the likeliest trade target, even though the season isn’t even a month old — the line continued to play hard but out of sync.;JSESSIONID=F3645A830DA934D496C7.3149?site=newsday&view=sports_item&feed:a=newsday_5min&feed:c=sports&feed:i=1.3295620&nopaging=1

    The Islanders are a perfect example to Leaf and Oilers fans of a young hardworking(most nights) talented team that is just sputtering. They played lights out to end last season but right now the wheels are just spinning. This could happen to either of the above mentioned teams. Comeau I think would be a pretty decent pick up for a team going forward. Young, talented and point totals going up each season he has played so far.

    I'm comparing them to the Leafs last year. They will struggle at times and be dominant at other times but in the end because they are just to young, they won't make the playoffs. 

    However, this team is going to be a killer team soon enough. They have a lot of piece that are just waiting to be surrounded by some veteran talent and they will explode to be a top 5 team in the East. 
    If they could add a minute munching dman, it would go a long ways to helping them out. A guy like Bouwmeester would be perfect, maybe even Komisarek if his play appears to be up. 
  3. dumbassdoorman says:

    Komi could be of value to them simply for his leadership. Plus they don't play the same system as the goof coach of ours, so he would be less likey to appear inadequate.

  4. reinjosh says:

    AGh yes, goof coach is a good explanation of him. Toronto's first and I'm still annoyed with him.

    Same. Honeslty, I think Scott Gordon has played a huge influence on this team. Look at how his Islanders played last year: Tough, gritty, aggressive. That's what Gordon has brought to the Leafs. The additions of Steckel and Dupuis help bring that identity as well.

  7. dumbassdoorman says:

    Ya, I think Gordon is a good coach and brought into put pressure on Wilson for sure. i wonder if he was promised anything, because I really think Eakins deserves his shot with the job he has done for the Leafs. Not to mention his players really seem to love playing for him.

  8. mojo19 says:

    Comeau could be a great pick up for some team. He has 0 points so far in 8 games this year. But last year he had 24 g and 22 a for 46 points. He's 25 years old, and could still be a solid player.

  9. mojo19 says:

    Josh Bailey and Blake Comeau for Rene Bourque and David Moss.

  10. dumbassdoorman says:

    I said above like you will be a good pick up, young guy who has seen his points total go up evey year in the league. Has some skill for sure, pending on price good young guy who has shown they can score a bit, hello Nashville or clb

  11. dumbassdoorman says:

    I think Cgy would be the winner of that deal, pending Baileys development.

  12. dumbassdoorman says:

    Reimer not out indefinately….hmmmmmmmm, wonder how the boys will play through this? Scrivens get the start i hope against bos. gus is not our long term solution, IMO

  13. senators_choke says:

    Agreed, I love the way Scrivens plays. He's got Cujo and Belfour written all over him.

  14. dumbassdoorman says:

    Well i am guessing we won't know who is playing until tomorrow night. I hope that Scrivens gets his shot and takes the ball and runs. having a goalie controversy would be awesome, sorta….lol….good problem to have. Especially since Rynnas is getting those extra mins in the AHL

  15. reinjosh says:

    Well that's annoying. I hope it's not turning into something serious. I hope Scrivens gets the start too. 

    I'm going to the game and I just don't want to see Gus lol. 
  16. dumbassdoorman says:

    Well you could always sneek in a slingshot and try to take him out….lol. going to the game, that's cool…..if the Leafs start winning big and Kessel has another trick, you could always start a thank you boston chant?

  17. LeafsNation4Ever says:


    We should make a THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH ANAHEIM chant.
    Lupul in itself would have sealed the deal, but Gardiner with the package? These two are tearing it up for us.
  18. MystifoLeafs says:

    I honestly see more of a Henrik Lundqvist in Scrivens, I mean Like Henrik he sees the puck constantly and is always squared with it. Even in the AHL and such the kid always can see where the puck is and is rarely caught out of position. Cujo seemed more athletic but still had the same vision. 

  19. reinjosh says:

    I like that idea, I'm gonna do it. 

    I would love to start a Thank You Boston chant. That would make my year.
  20. dumbassdoorman says:

    So Schenn is out and Franson is in, here's hoping he plays well after a long break, trying not to prove too much. Also sounds like Scrivens might get the start tonight, who knows? I hope he does as I think with the Bruins having lit up Gus last time, it would give them extra confidence this time. They dont need that as this is a huge game for the Leafs, IMO.

  21. 93killer93 says:

    hockeyBreak said Scrivens will get the start tonight.  He also said a number of teams made trade offers to Burke for Scrivens, back in September. But the leafs felt he would be a future #1 in the NHL, so they have no plans to move him.  

  22. dumbassdoorman says:

    Ya I was reading the on the star website. I like the kids demeanor, i hope he plays well, a legitimate one two punch is a great thing

  23. reinjosh says:

    According to the GoalieGuild (they scout goalies, that's all they do), its Scrivens, because Wilson didn't announce the starter yesterday or this morning. He wants to protect Scrivens from the media coverage etc…

  24. 93killer93 says:

    If Scrivens gets a couple more games and outplays Gustavsson, i wonder what they do when reimer comes back. 

  25. dumbassdoorman says:

    When Reimer is healthy he will get his net back, unless Scrivens has posted like 10 shutouts in 12 games………But Wilsion will be more inclined to play the backup more often

  26. 93killer93 says:

    i was thinking more along the lines of who becomes the backup. 

  27. TheLeafNation91 says:

    So, 3 things:

    1. Scrivens will be playing

    2. Schenn is sitting, Franson is playing

    3. Dupuis is playing over Rosehill

    I like this for 3 particular reasons:

    1. Gus got blown up last game and he's the type of goalie that gets scared with playing certain teams. Really has to learn how to deal with that.

    2. Besides the fact Schenn has been poop, but Franson brings a bit more speed and offence on the back end. The Bruins are skilled and grindy, but their not particularly fast. I think with Franson back there, you get more offensive explosion.

    3. Dupuis relates to the point above. Last time, the Leafs went with a tougher looking squad and got exploited. Today, it looks like their going with more speed. Their also a pretty grindy team already so speed will only help them.

    Also, I expect a better game. Last time, the Leafs were playing 3 games in 4 nights, and also played a back-to-back and traveled the night before so they were pretty exhausted.

    Tonights game is huge, a W over the B's will create a bigger gap (though its early in the season and it is overcomeable) but a gap is a gap

  28. dumbassdoorman says:

    I know yopu were, was just being funny. But if Scrivens keeps playing well, he gets the nod….as I feel Burke will tell him the way it is!!!

  29. dumbassdoorman says:

    Not a fan of must win games type sayings, but this really kinda is. This is a statement game and huge for the continuing devlopment of this young team. A win tonight is a big time step towards legitimacy.

  30. reinjosh says:

    Actually I'm pretty sure Dupuis is getting scratched in favor of Rosehill. Not a fan of the move. I'd prefer Dupuis in, like you. I figure its to provide an opponent to Thornton if it comes to that.
