Commie on SportsNet. He found out 6 min ago. He didn't expect to be traded. Has only talked to Holland, is now saying bye to the team. Believes he can be a veteran presence. Hopes to play a regular shift and get some PK time. Disappointed to leave because of the team, but he knows there isn't an opportunity for him in Detroit. He wants to play for a few more years, and hopes to play in many games this season. Being asked if he'd be open to re-sign with Tampa, Commie responded 'I just want to play. I just want to get out there and play.' He thanks Holland for seeing he didn't have a chance to play in Detroit and hopes to be able to play in Tampa. He wasn't miserable in Detroit because of the team. Commie says, 'I'm single, no kids. I'll just pack a couple suitcases and fly south.'

Janik over Smith?

Won't recall Smith to sit on the bench. Janik takes over as 7th D-Man

Tampa Bay Acquires: (D) Mike Commadore
Detroit Acquires: Conditional 7th-Round Pick
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Wings get conditional 7th round pick for Commie. Good luck to him down there.

Yeah, did alright for us in the games he played. Would have been better if he had worn #64 tho.

Very surprised at the Wings moving Commie. Are they clearing up a roster spot or do we really, really want that pick?

Precursor to something bigger? We're now 1 under the 50-contract limit. PIcks and unsigned prospects about to get moved, maybe?

I don't really care that much but don't understand why the Wings would do this unless it is to clear up roster space?

I think part of the Commie trade is that KH knew he wasn't going to get a chance to play here and Commie probably wanted an opportunity to get on the ice. They weren't going to keep him, he wasn't going to get in the line-up so might as well get something for him.

That is a possibility. Though I would expect they would have thrown in a guy that is low level prospect similar to Piche in the Quincey deal.

That said, it may just be to open room on 50 man roster.

A lot of analysts calling it a respect move by KH though. Saying he wanted to give Commie a chance to play somewhere to continue his career.

Stars telling teams Ott won't be traded unless a "great" deal is offered.

this is what I think as well. Commie is a great guy, he will make the best of this, as he has here. I really liked him, so wish him all the best. :bye2:
