from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
While Bryan Murray remains interested in the 28-year-old Comrie, the Senators GM doesn’t have salary-cap room. In fact, he has to cut $1.3 million — a byproduct of not finding a new home for Dany Heatley and his $7.5-million cap hit.
If the Senators aren’t able to trade Heatley before medicals Sept. 12 — and that’s looking more likely — Comrie will have options elsewhere.
“There are five or six teams interested and we’re quite confident that we’ll have something done before training camp,” said Winter Saturday. “Each of them have varying degrees of interest. We’re working on various, different types of structures.”
Comrie, who made $4 million last season, is likely going to have to take a paycut to the $1.5-$2 million range.
