Tailing the Komets

Book is now available in bookstores

Finally, the book is available for order through the bookstores and might be on sale as early as late this week. I know Walden's in Glenbrook is ordering some copies for sure, and the rest of the stores can now order it through their supplier. It is also available at Komet Kuarters and will be available at the games against this season.

There is going to be a second Komets book on the men who have had their numbers retired. It's about 75 percent finished, but I won't be able to publish it until probably next year at this time because of the agreement with the publisher of the first book. If the first book takes off, maybe this one can come out sooner.

 I'm also working on a non-Komet sports book which is about 75 percent done and I hope to publish next spring. Can't say more than that yet.

Welcome back, Blake!

As to your second book, hope you'll have lots to write about my all-time favorite Komet player, #18, Robbie Laird. On second thought, I think I could probably write a book about him myself. How about some competition???

Sorry you missed all the excitement when the K's signed my second favorite ever, Colin Chaulk. I'm looking forward to seeing him in the assistant coach role. I think he's the perfect choice for that position.

Right now there's about 12-15 pages on each of them.

Thu, 08/09/2007 - 10:50am

The newest one about the players that have their number retired sounds awesome.

chase on the radio this morning said henley would be signed and they had a dman on th radar as tough as henley and 6ft 9 ! any info?

Fri, 08/10/2007 - 12:24pm

I know a lot of people will be happy with Henley signing, But I ask this question. When will the signing take place? If in fact he won't be available til December at the earliest and he's signed now, the Komets automaticly use up an IR spot for an injured player.

chase said he might be available nov ist but i bet thats a little too soon unless his surgery wasnt as bad as once thought.

Fri, 08/10/2007 - 3:35pm

Huge Henley fan!! Good deal!! I can wait for him to play...

Fri, 08/10/2007 - 3:58pm

Here's the 6' 9 guy you were talking about...

Fri, 08/10/2007 - 3:58pm



This thing needs an edit button as much as I mess up.

Fri, 08/10/2007 - 7:38pm

I really hope that Manson guy signs.

Fri, 08/10/2007 - 9:22pm

Sorry if this is old news and hopefully this can be brought up without any insults directed his way but I notice Arthur Kiyaga also has a book that has published. I am trying to remember if this was talked about a few months ago or not.

Sat, 08/11/2007 - 11:08am

I knew his poetry had been talked about here but I don't remember any mention of a book, but then again I can be kind of a blonde sometimes... Good for Arthur, I'm glad to see he got published!

So much for them signing players by the weekend

Sun, 08/12/2007 - 12:04pm

agreed IcyKometsFan84

Sun, 08/12/2007 - 2:11pm

They may have signed..BUT..until they get league approval they can't annouce it....so just keep your pants on..they will be annouced...

Sun, 08/12/2007 - 2:12pm

but i'm not saying they will make any kind of annoucement this week..because I have no idea...I'm just saying..they might of signed on friday..if they did..it'll probably be annouced this week sometime..who knows...its only Aug 12..

Sun, 08/12/2007 - 5:05pm

everyone knew Hansen signed days before and they had it on the Fort Wayne news days before they announced it. What you guys think of Flint getting a affilate with Detriot Red wings and also being able to put two players in Red Wings and the Atlanta Thrashers training camp? I think the Komets need this badly. So does the rest of the teams in the league.

Sun, 08/12/2007 - 5:44pm

its all window dressing doesnt really mean much except to fool a rookie into thinking something that statisticly wont happen, but if otheres do it , then we should too. hershey with our connection there would be a great start!

Sun, 08/12/2007 - 6:17pm

Its been said that we got some spots in 2 diffrent AHL camps..that right there will draw in some younger guys..who want to go to that league....

Sun, 08/12/2007 - 7:55pm

yea like what teams? QC and Rockford?

Tue, 08/14/2007 - 6:11am

What's the deal I'm hearing on WMEE this morning about the K's signing a local kid from Carroll High School???

Tue, 08/14/2007 - 10:54am

Maybe from that Komets Junior team.

Tue, 08/14/2007 - 5:41pm

Teresa...they are talking about Brandon Warner, he played at Michigan State for 4 years. He is from Huntertown.

Tue, 08/21/2007 - 9:16am
