The Calgary Flames have claimed winger Blake Comeau off waivers today from the New York Islanders.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: This could be worthwhile for Comeau and the Flames. The 25-year-old was off to the worst start of his young NHL career this season, possibly tied to his contentious contract talks with Islanders management this summer. The Flames needed youth and more scoring depth. If Comeau can regain the form which saw him score 24 goals last season, he could be a worthwhile addition to the Flames lineup.
