Tailing the Komets

Franke: Komets are talking with Chwedoruk

He said they are getting close to signing the winger who is back home after having two European teams go out of business on him this season. We'll know more tomorrow.

The Komets are still planning on activating Kevin Bertram also so some moves will have to be made.

Colin Chaulk won't play Friday because he's home in To

I'm not a Chewy fan from his QC days, wonder what, if anything this means for Shaf's return.

Condolences to Colin and his Family..

260 games makes him a veteran.

So which veteran goes? Let ask some questions here...

1) Has Shaf had enough finally? Is this beating he has taken led him to retirement? Enough is enough?

2) Is Jaromir Olivier Kotyluk Stayzer on thin ice?

3) I hope Nick Boucher is not seriously injured. Is he?

4) Does Chewy come in here to play for the length of time that Shaf is on the 30-day IR, and then Al evaluates who is the best veterans at that time and decides who stays, and who goes?

5) Which rookie or tweener is on the block right now?

6) Bertram is coming back....who is leaving? The Salary cap has to be an issue right now, doesn't it? Is there a higher priced player that is under-performing that might be leaving us?

7) Is Warner safe?

The roster moves, injuries, suspensions, call-ups, salary cap.....what a head-ache.

300 games make him a vet if I'm not mistaken and he hasn't hit that plateau yet...

You are right, I don't know why I was thinking 200 was the mark, but 300 is correct. My mistake for the........minute.

Hit, you might be thinking of the ECHL's vet status. I know its lower than the IHL and 260 actually might be it, or close to it.

What a great problem to have, to many players and not enough holes to fill. It's a numbers game like everything else.

Al will figure it out, it's what he's good at. Patience is the key, sometimes these things have a way of working themselves out with all the different scenarios that can happen in a season. It's always like this until January and even then we may still make a change or two.

Remember, he has to rule with his head and not his heart. It's tough, but that's the way it is.

Al proved that when he waved his son.

Quite frankly, I don't think Al had any choice in waiving Tyler. Too many people were making it exceedingly clear that if he didn't, they'd lose all respect for him, even if Al had a very good reason for keeping his son on board. So it does seem rather odd to me when the same people praise him for waiving Tyler after the fact.

Personally, I trust Al to make the decisions he feels are right for the team. That's good enough for me.
