Hold The Phone! You Want This Guy?

With all the excitement surrounding Mike Commodore all over the Oilogosphere the last few days, I ask you this. Do you really want this guy? (see below)

Signed A Large Contract Did We?

While in the one hand, we finally get to get rid of Sheldon Souray. The other hand, is holding this guy*.

No thanks.

Fuzzy Wuzzy Was A Bear
In my opinion, Souray is still a good capable hockey player. Regardless of what has happened with the Oilers (past and present), he's worth more than that guy is right now. Commodore just isn't that good.

Souray will be paid $4.5 million this year with another season after this one on the books. Commodore is a (an average) $3.53 million a year, for a year longer than Souray. So is this really a salary dump? Not really, considering your on the hook one more year longer than if you just kept Souray and made him play.

Paying out Souray on the books for the next 2 years is $9 million. Having Commodore for 3 years will cost the Oilers $10,650,000 over that span. So if you want to get technical, it is a dump so to speak. But like I said, an extra year of having a marginal player on the blue line isn't helping the cause. At all.

I say, stay away from this guy and wait till a good (OK, a better) trade comes along. He's weird (look at the pictures) and he's not worth the cash (also look at the pictures).

Although... if I had only two choices, I'd gladly take Commodore over this bum below. He's worth $1 million, and is getting paid $6. Ouch! STAY AWAY TAMBELLINI!

$6 Million Dollar Man
*EDIT: I had written douche, but to be fair I don't know him personally so I changed it to the word guy.
