The Sens have traded their disgruntled and highly disappointing Russian prospect Alexei Kaigorodov (Evgeni Malkin No. 2 my ass, HF Boards) to Phoenix for Mike Comrie.

Mike Comrie (along with Shane Doan) will be unrestricted free agents at the end of this year, but the price for Doan would have dealt a significant blow to the Sens' roster. Comrie has recovered well from his fractured foot, recording 11 points in 9 games.

Ultimately this is a better choice than Petr Nedved, and takes care of the embarrassing problem of Kaigorodov. How effective Comrie is in a Sens uniform remains to be seen, however.

To relive memories of Kaigorodov (which sounds like a sauce you can buy at Loblaws), go here. Also, here's the link to the column I wrote about the alleged white knight in the preseason.
