If you haven't heard, which I'm sure all of you have, it's Dusty Virag to Kalamazoo for the rights to Andrew Luciuk. Terms of the contract have been agreed upon, but there's a need to get his immigration papers in line before he can play. He's hoping to go by this weekend.
It's a shame for Dusty who has done so much for the Komets. Haven't had a chance to talk to him yet, but I'll bet he's upset.
Luciuk seems like a standup guy and said he can't wait to get here.
All of that could pale in comparison to the next move the Komets may be making, and let's put it this way, if this one works out, all Komets fans and the players will be thrilled. Pick up tomorrow's paper for more on that one. This might be exactly what the Komets need.
Another couple of things. I asked Komets GM David Franke about the Jason Kean on waivers rumors, and he said absolutely not. He also said again that Lance Galbraith has not quit the team or asked for a trade. He is simply dealing with a family problem and definitely will be back.
