Tailing the Komets

Frenchy update

He told me today that he met again with the Frankes and he was encouraged. ``They told me what they want from me, and I told them what I need from them,'' he said. ``Now we're talking numbers.''

A decision will probably be made by Tuesday.

In other news, Hit, what's the deal? I leave you in charge and you take down the whole system! 97, hours Hit Somebody forced the system to crash with his numbers game!

Oh, well, I'm going back to counting 99 bottles of beer on the bar. Blake

I wondered what happened....I could read comments, but couldn't post...said system was down for maintenance! Blake, enjoy your vacation....the wife is asking if you're doing anything special or just taking it easy. Also, she wanted to know when you'll return, but I told her that is a state secret! Enjoy, my friend

On Frenchy, well... I reserve comment until we see what the numbers are and what his place on the team would be and of course how he performs. All I will say for now is I hope he is in ADDITION to Reiter and not in place of him.

11 age of Hit Somebody. LOL. Couldn't resist. Frenchy told me by Tuesday, which is also the same day as the new coach will have a press conference. Coincidence? I highly doubt it.

Warrior Hockey Update #1: Kevin St. Piere has reached a contract with the KOMETS! it will be announced soon!!!!:)

I don't blame hit. I have a sneakin suspicion JD got a look at ILH comments about him and crashed the system to get rid of them, darn that ILH.

This appears to be a summer where the Komets organization is going to string us along making decisions, now we have to wait til the 18th for word on Frenchy, come on. I can sort of understand why St. Pierre needs to think it over, the Frankes originaly said that he wasn't in their plans for next year, if he's as good as most people seem to think, shouldn't he have other offers by now, if he really wants to play in the Fort then why the hassle to think about it? Just my thoughts.

I also say if he's signed, the Komets can kiss off a quality back up.

Thu, 07/13/2006 - 4:43am

Maybe there was no indecision on the Franke's part. Maybe Pulhalski made the decision that Frenchy wasn't wanted any longer and after Pulahlski left, both Marks and Bingham told the Frankes that they have to be crazy to dump one of the top goalies at the AA level.

MAN! Your not komet warrior, MAN. Got it MAN?

Thu, 07/13/2006 - 4:56am

the system stopped when i posted a thing about the FBI calls with Galante and Brosal. Its an FBI/UHL/Galante conspiracy.

Thu, 07/13/2006 - 4:58am

Don't tell me KW Actually has a fan club and wants to emulate him.

We're done for.

Thu, 07/13/2006 - 5:12am

just checkin to see if they shut it down again...

Thu, 07/13/2006 - 5:49am

Saw where Kevin Watters was signed by Corpus Christi of the CHL. One draft pick not available.

Thu, 07/13/2006 - 6:24am

I don't think they are stringing us along. There are alot of players available and it has been a long time since there has been this much roster turnover. That combined with the fact that they have to consider every decision against the hard cap/

Thu, 07/13/2006 - 7:05am

I guess my minor little rant is because the Frankes seem to be in a rutt. I know I should be patient(sp), but I think all the teams have at least one or two players signed and the Komets are dealing with an issue they've been dealing with for two months. Make a decision and move on. We've already lost one of our dispersal draft picks, and it's possible he would not have fit in with Bingham's system, but we don't even know if he was contacted.

Thu, 07/13/2006 - 8:48am

This thing having problems again or is everybody asleep?

Thu, 07/13/2006 - 9:08am

im awake...
