Tailing the Komets

This is always fun to talk about

The Intotheboards ranking of the top 20 Class AA minor league hockey teams can be found here.

Agree, disagree?

Bruce Ramsay's Muskegon team is No. 2, Kevin Kaminski's Youngstown team is No. 4 so congrats to them as well.

I think you have to put Muskegon somewhere in the top 5. I'm surprised that they would give Chicago such a high rating this early in the season. And for giving Rockford #20 they sure seemed to slam them a bit.

I'm glad to see that Fort Wayne is being recognized this early into the season (especially in the Top 5) It will be interesting to see if the Komets can climb higher in the ITB Poll as the season progresses. Of course, it's not like the #1 team wins a National Championship! LOL!

Chicago has also played every game on the road so far.

I always thought it would be kind of cool to see all of the different top Double A teams play in a seperate tournament to see who is best. Representing not only your championship team, but your league.

Yeah Blake, but their 11th with a 2-2 record. That still seems a bit high evne though they haven't played a road game yet.

I'm sorry that should have said,"...haven't played a home game yet."

Of course there's nothing on my rankings Blake ;)

Elmira is waaayyyyyy too high on the list. Were these people that voted on drugs?

Rockford will finish second in the Div, 4th in the league, but Whiny Baby doesn't have what it takes to win the big one, so #20 is right about where they should be.

I don't Burgee, 2nd on the league right now is pretty good. I think ownership wants to show that they belong in this league. They may be tougher than we think.

Sorry Bugree, I was talking about Elimra and not Rockford. I could care less about them.

Hit Somebody!!!

I think it is something that K-Zoo is that high. Didn't we expose their top players at K-Zoo with basically our guys that were fighting for roster spots. I know it was only pre-season, but I don't think they are as good as us this year.

Funny too, 3 out of the top 5 are out of the UHL. Most people on here want you to believe that the ECHL is so much superior to our league in talent. I never thought so, and I still don't think so. CHL is not in our league either. A notch down I would say.

All of this is just guessing anyway. It would be fun to see a tourney at the end of the year with all three leagues. Even an All-Star game against either league would be a blast. You don't have to give the 1000 reasons why this can't or won't happen...I know the reasons. Doesn't change the fact that it would be fun.
