Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Robert Tychkowski of the Edmonton Sun,
The Edmonton Oilers are deciding whether or not to give former Oiler Mike Comrie another tour of duty at Rexall Place.
They are not the only team on Comrie’s radar screen right now, but in a development that’s straight out of the Strange But True file, the unrestricted free agent is seriously considering a return to the town that’s heckled him mercilessly ever since his bitter departure six years ago.
While Comrie is warm to the idea, Oilers management is not unanimous in their desire to bring him back.
That, and the fact that Comrie is still speaking with other teams, means this is no slam dunk.
But the fact it’s even being considered, given that Comrie left town in the second-most volatile break-up in franchise history—Chris Pronger remains No. 1 in Edmonton’s hearts—is jaw-dropping.
