Back Home Again

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,

“Home sweet home,” laughed Comrie, who turns 29 today. “This decision just feels right at this time in my life… I’m older, more mature and before when I played here, it was a little overwhelming and I didn’t embrace it as well as I should have.

“I felt I had to get away ... but I got chills walking back into this rink.”

Perhaps local fans will cut Comrie some slack, and not boo him every time he touches the puck. That’s what they did when he played with the Coyotes.

Only one former Oiler, Chris Pronger, has infuriated locals more. Edmontonians don’t forget when a player doesn’t want to play here.
