Anyone Want Commodore?

from Aaron Portzline of Puck-Rakers,

The Dispatch spoke to Commodore yesterday in Jobing.com Arena, after it was apparent he wasn’t playing in last night’s game against the Phoenix Coyotes but before the request for a trade was known.

Here’s what Commodore said:

“(Arniel) doesn’t want to play me. Obviously, he doesn’t want to play me. After wins, losses ... it doesn’t matter. Obviously, I’m the seventh guy in his mind. So, I’m going to take care of myself, be a good teammate, work hard, practice hard and keep myself ready for whatever comes in the future.”

This is the latest detour in what has been a winding road since Commodore signed a five-year, $18.75 million contract on July 1, 2008. A no-trade clause covered the first two years of the deal, but lifted last July 1.

Let’s see, a d-man that can’t skate and has poor hockey sense.

Sounds like a perfect fit for Toronto’s collection.

I just wish he’d change his sweater number to 64.

San Jose has been reportedly looking to add a D-man, however I don’t think Commodore is the answer to their problems.

The next pic Commodore will tweet will be one of him dressed like Bill Belichek and in an unemployment line…
