Anton Kharin 23 games played, 2 goals, 4 points and minus-13
Now watch him score a hat trick today. LOL.
While Curdy has 40 gp, 8 g, 11 pts, and a -15...
I also remember someone saying the Komets were in camp and in the best condition they've ever been in at that point....then a few weeks later saying the Komets came into camp unconditioned.
If you want to keep playing your "I told you so" game, we can and will do it right back but quite frankly it's pretty darn immature for a professional reporter....
"We" GM? Got a mouse in your pocket?
Couldn't resist, I hear that from time to time. :-)
There's plenty on here that don't mind pointing out the errors that Blake has made if he would like to continue this nonsense lol
Hey GM, what crawled up your butt and died lately?
I have never claimed to be the expert. It's just easy to look like one with some of the stuff you guys throw up here.
I don't understand why something had to "crawl up" his "butt and die" just because he made a valid point. Where's that thick mastadon skin when you need it??
Shouldn't brian be jumping on Blake's case also for addressing a pro by name and talking about his struhgles on the ice?? Nevermind, he's probably too busy skating warm-ups with the Komets and sharing his expertise with them.
Eh, whatever. Keep up the good work on the ice tonight. GO KOMETS!
Just don't understand why you guys are all so dang negative lately. It's pulling the numbers way down, so it's turning other people off too. Heaven forbid if the Komets actually have a really bad season again where they lose all the way through. Spoiled brats.
And I get so few right, it's almost an obligation for me to brag about those few.
We are negative because mediocrity at home isn't acceptable when you lead the league in attendance. Pay 20 bucks a game for 30 games a year and watch them lose 70% of them and see how you feel.
I'm not sure if it would matter if they won 75 percent of their games at home.
If they won 75% of there home games they would be at 58 points....I would most definitely be satisfied with being in 3rd place and being 5 points out of first. Not sure about everybody else though. Its just frustrating seeing how much we as fans commit to this team and for us to underachieve like we have this year. This place is really the only place we can vent as a collective.
Also this link explains my feelings about the internet.
Also....great finish by Derek
If everything was positive all the time I feel a blog would be pointless. People like to discuss things that "could" be. Perfection is something everyone should strive for. (even if it is unachievable)
Everyone has an opinion as to what went wrong on any given night, and shouldn't be tagged as a "negative nellie" for simply trying to point it out. I think the negative feedback is outstanding for the most part. Love debating it when I disagree, and love adding to it when I think it is spot on.
Some of the so called "positive" folks seem to be unable to handle anyone's perspective if it isn't totally care bear ridden. Would hate for any blog to turn into a hug fest filled with nodding heads and pats on the back. Simply agreeing with what everyone else has to say makes for a boring read IMO.. I will talk to the mirror if I need someone to agree with all my opinions and give me a self fulfilling statement.
GM and RK I have argued with both of you on several topics and look forward to doing it again. Keep up the negative talk, and I'll get back at ya in the future for a fullfilling, thought provoking debate. until then - cheers -
I dont ever remember arguing with you, komets, but Im always up for a good discussion. I guess I dont live for the blog like others do, and Im not saying you do, komets.
The numbers are way down, but there was a post not long ago thanking posters for 100,000.
If. Thats if i remember correctly Blake was told by a few players that they were in the best shape they had been in years. For Blake to say in an article something he was "told" i feel it isnt his fault he was not properly or truthfully informed. Just sayin.
Ks up 2-0 after 1. Look good so far. Fun game. No complaints!
I missed the Mirasty fight. How did it go?
Blake did say that, but I was under the impression that he wasn't wrong. Of all the problems the K's had to start the season, I don't think conditioning was a significant one next to the team's other problems.
Nothing has crawled up my butt nor am I being negative, I'm simply pointing out Blake is acting like a child doing a version of "I told you so" every chance he gets yet when it's returned to him we're being negative or have something up our butts? There is no reason for a professional reporter to be posting quotes from people made months ago nor is there any reason for this thread to even exist.
and as far as being spoiled, I could care less about the Komets W/L record, I've said that several times in the past and Ive admitted to having more fun this year despite the record because the quality of hockey is better...But who likes to let facts get in the way...
Komets123, I totally agree with a nod of my head. Next time I see you your getting a big hug from this Care Bear!!! lol
RK.. there is a big difference in blakes post as opposed to yours. its the approach. what was negative about pointing out the numbers? blake didnt criticize the player. you still dont get it! say all you want , about me and my skating and playing with pros, it really dont bother me. it just shows your ignorance of the game once again.
What you and the pros do behind closed doors is your business, brian. No one wants to hear about who you play with, this is a family blog! Tell Crosby and Ovechkin "Hi" for me when you critique their games with your expertise. Many of us have wondered why such a superstar professional as your self, who obviously knows all about the game, is blogging in Fort Wayne, Indiana on a minor league team's thread? Shouldn't you be out training the U.S. team for the winter Olympics?
This Brian dude cracks me up.
RK.. sounds like a bit of jealousy.. but again .. you just keep showing your maturity and ignorance at the same time. id be happy to match hockey wits with you any time . ive never claimed to be a super star or anything else. just simply someone who has grown up his whole life around the game and was fortunate enough to play it at a fairly high level. i can definately say i understand the game of hockey much more than yourself. any time someone disagrees with your post , you attack them personally, pretty immature. i read these blogs and blakes post because i love the game and sometimes there are insightful post and information in regards to the game. unfortunately its bloggers such as yourself that sour the entire concept of this blog. its ok to agree to disagree but unfortunately my friend you dont understand that concept
JM.. im so happy your amused.. im glad that i could be entertaining for you. what would you like to debate about the komets or the game of hockey? please tell me!
Don't worry, brian, we are not friends. I do have fun on the blog. Some, such as yourself, have no sense of humor and don't get it, which is ok. Just because I don't agree with you does not mean I don't "get it" as you say redundantly. It's also fine that you dedicate your life to minor league hockey, rather than see it as a form of entertainment. Sad, but ok.
Blogs are for discussing and sometimes arguing, not dictating. If someone has a different opinion, you don't cry about it or try to one-up them constantly or block their posts. Some people can take it, some people can't. It's hard to believe that someone who is so great at hockey is so easily wound up on a blog. A lot of people on here seem to be the ones who had mommy and daddy stick up for them when they got made fun of, and now they can't take it. That, or they never played any sports, kept stats constantly, and never developed a thick skin. Oh well, people like brian make it fun for the rest of us, even if they are so vastly superior.
Watch out JM, he's a pro and skates with the pros behind closed doors. Don't anger der fuhrer! Next thing you know, he'll tell us about how he taught Gretzky to score and Roy and Sawchuk how to mind the nets.
To each his own. Off to make this day wonderful for my wonderful woman. Enjoy your keyboard, brian.
Seems RK you are the one with the inferior complex. You have a wonderful way of putting words into anothers mouth. Once again.. You show your ignorance. Feel sorry for the lady lol bet she is never a winner in a disagreement with you. And yeah I'm very confident my hockey knowledge and wisdom is greater than yours.. You keep proving it :)
Brian is a Canlan warrior who played IPFW club hockey...All bow down!
Now "Children" behave!
