The isles winger is a restricted free agent and doesn't have many options beyond filing. "People think it's a negative part of the (negotiating) process, but it really isn't," said Kurt Overhardt, Comeau's agent. "We'll continue talking all the way through."

Comeau, 25, just finished a two-year, $1.3-million deal last season. His 24 goals were fourth-most on the team last season; if the two sides go to arbitration, he would be in line for a significant raise.
