Per Kyperos on Twitter: Link

I'll post updates as soon as I get them. No word on return yet. Maybe first rounder back so they can get Gaustad? haha

A conditional 7th round pick? Wow, that's gotta be an ego bruiser for Commie.

7th rounder ... boy, that's just a bit better than a bag of pucks. BUT we'll turn that 7th rounder into a Zetterberg like forward.

Maybe Holland is trying to move contracts to get less than 50 contracts signed.

Also, whats the condition?

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

Yup, would imagine that's the deal.

I posted this in the other thread, but it may also be of interest here.

Here is what I was able to type from Commie's Sportsnet interview.

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 his playing team. He liked the team in Detroit. Commie says, 'I'm single, no kids. I'll just pack a couple suitcases and fly south.'

There's got to be another move coming. Holland wouldn't give up defensive depth for the hell of it.
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

An excellent possibility. I hadn't thought of that.

Would also mean that he's trying to bring in multiple players. Maybe Roy/Gaustad?

Edit: Or, maybe not. I guess he could be trying to get a single player for pick(s).

They would rather see Smith in lineup than Commie, hence the trade per Helene St. James.

Bizarre...if it was an Emmerton or Mursak I could understand it to free up the logjam at forward, but this leaves us with 6 Dmen right now
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk
