The re-building process continues for the New York Islanders as they signed centre Mike Comrie to a 1-year deal worth $3.375 million. Comrie only played 65 games last season between Phoenix and Ottawa, but played in all of the Senators' games during their Cup run. In the regular season, he finished with 20 goals and 45 points, which obviously, in an 82-game season, would be up to around 60 points. He's generally a Top 100 kind of player, but if he fell down a round or two, you may be in for a bargain.
You may see Comrie on a line with other new acquisition, Bill Guerin, and if so, may have a pretty decent season. It didn't really look like Guerin was going to have someone to play with, but Comrie isn't quite the guy a Joe Thornton is (understatement of the off-season).
