Lowe throws a wrench on Comrie trade
Oilers GM Kevin Lowe might have botched a trade with the Ducks with an unprecedented request that Mike Comrie.
The Mighty Ducks and the Oilers had agreed in principle on a deal that would send the restricted free agent to Anaheim in exchange for 2003 first-round draft choice (28th overall) Corey Perry of the Ontario Hockey League's London Knights and a 2004 first-round pick to Edmonton. But that deal was contingent upon Comrie reaching a contract agreement with the Ducks and Oilers general manager Kevin Lowe getting a concession from the disgruntled Edmonton native.
"We've agreed to the terms of a trade," Mighty Ducks GM Bryan Murray told The Orange County Register. "We've agreed to the terms of a contract (with Comrie). Now it's between the Oilers and Comrie to get their differences settled."
