    Well he had to clear waivers one way or another. I think the Coyotes just need a temporary backup and they'll likely waive him again in a couple of weeks (at which point the Jets can try to reclaim him).

    Good luck Comrie. I think it worked out for Jets and Comrie We are too deep with goalies now
    Hope Comrie gets a chance to start a few NHL games to prove himself.
    I like to see how Bird man perform starting a full AHL season and who doesn’t like a prospect named Outhouse for clean up duty in goal?

    ROFL...yeah, I’ll miss Crazy Eyes Comrie for sure with all that orbital action.

    Good luck it Arizona! Not a big loss for us. We might see him back if it doesn’t work out over there.

    As mediocre as he is as an NHL goalie, we're pretty thin depth wise now if one of the goalies goes down...

    There's AHL-starter type goalies available on waivers pretty often throughout the season. If Hellebuyck or Brossoit go down, they ride the other and have a bit of time to find a stopgap replacement. The only real risk is both going down to injury at the same time, which is a risk for any team. Even then, they probably don't have to try too hard to get a replacement that's better than Comrie.

    Comrie was a stand up person and did a lot of good work in the community. I wish him nothing but the best of luck going forward. Unfortunately he developed a bit slower in the pro ranks then expected so the Jets had to move in another direction.

    I'm not sure if he is an NHL goalie or not but his preseason was promising.

    He'll be back, just like Toby Flenderson.

    I noticed he got lit up for 5-6 goals in his first game back in the AHL.

    Wow. Still have no idea why the Coyotes picked him up. They have a stacked group of goalie prospects. Look at the goalie stats - they were all doing well before Comrie played:

    2*E. Kallgren267:43100.8901003096.7%

    He has to shake off some rust and learn a new goalie coach's systems. :sarcasm:

    Stopping the breakaway at the end to maintain the lead is all that matters... ;)

    Coyotes must like Comrie to sit in him for now. I think they will be trading one of their goaltenders Trading partner. Maple Leafs

    Okay. That was an AHL game and he's put up very decent numbers over his past 100 AHL games. So not really old self, but I get we're just trying to keep up with the snark around here! :)

    Probably a thyroid condition. Although in men, you can also get that from a prostate exam. :laugh:
