Tailing the Komets

Another clue

Bueller? Bueller?

Anyone? Anyone?

Here's our first (and likely last the way it's going) trivia question:

1. Besides Tod Hartje, what former Komet wrote a book and what was the title?

2. OK, here's another clue. He's probably the most successful Komet of all-time. C'mon, now, that's a huge clue, and I'll just settle for the player and skip the title. And no, I didnt' write it (wish I had).

Oh, man, this truly DOES prove that I'm the most desperate person around in terms of needing to get a life. Oh, the shame!

Was he a "Komet" or was just here long enough for a cup of coffee? Tod Hartje and his 6 games played doesn't do it for me.

But I'll take a stab because I have really no clue. Al Sims? I have a gut feeling its a fighter-type though.

OK, another clue. Fighter type is very, very good, but think major leagues.

Last clue, if any former Komet is going to make it into the Hockey Hall of Fame, this is the guy, and no, it's not Len Thornson or Bob Chase or any kind of a trick question like that.

Good guess, but not quite. That would be a really fun book to read. No, it's not Cal Purinton, either.

Very good guess, Tom. You're on the right track and timeline.

How about Jeff Carlson, one of the infamous Hanson Brothers?

Sorry, you're getting colder Larry.
You guys are going to kick yourselves when you get the answer.

Absolute final clue. He won the Stanley Cup.

Ding, ding, ding.
Andrew got it.

Fergie won five Stanley Cup rings with Montreal and is regarded by many as the toughest fighter ever to play in the NHL. I can't believe he's not in the HOF.

Is it worth it to continue these? What do you think?

yes, lets have another
