Red Wings waive Eric Comrie, with Jimmy Howard nearing return | Detroit News

Detroit – The Red Wings waived goaltender Eric Comrie Wednesday, after Jimmy Howard played in a minor league rehab start Tuesday and looked ready to rejoin the Detroit lineup.

Howard stopped 30 shots for Grand Rapids in a 3-2 shootout victory over San Diego.

Howard is expected to rejoin the Wings in time for Thursday’s practice, and likely play one of the two games this weekend – Saturday in Toronto, or Sunday at home against Arizona.

We’ll find out later today if Comrie is still a member of the Red Wings organization. Prashanth has more info on the decision by Steve Yzerman:

There are no Red Wings players mentioned in this one. I can’t imagine anyone is going to trade for Trevor Daley, right? At this point, what is Mike Green actually worth at the deadline? A 2nd rounder at best? Is that too high of an ask?
